LET THIS NIGHT BE SPIRITED TILL MORN
Let us not shed tears this on this wondrous night ,
And let us not mourn an inch into the heavens ,
Let us sing tonight songs that live in happy hearts ,
Songs which start with the most prettiest of women ,
And songs which end with the heartiest of laughs ,
Let us tonight drum the richest skins stretched ,
Let us pick the sweetest strings of silk,
Let us dine tonight like kings do ,once in a lifetime ,
A meal which starts at midnight at ends at dawn ,
And let us drink tonight the sweetest syrups ,
which start with honey and end with water sweeter ;
And when we live tonight , let us live joyful ,
Let us share our happiness with sweet virgins of spring ,
And verse , how they seek love with the changing seasons ,
And how men embrace the sweet maidens so bountiful ,
Let us , on this night be engaged in joy unconfined ,
Till a brighter morn , shall bring us greater joy ,
But this night shall be the one we cherish ,
We shall cry no sadness , cry no parting ,
We shan't ink sorrow , shan't ink mourning ,
But paint with all our smiles and dances ,
What fairies seek in men they desire ,
And what men seek in fairies which do not exist ,
Light a fire tonight , and gather round it in thousands ,
And when the light shall shimmer in the faces of each ,
Narrate , Sing , yet shout what pleases you ,
And when this light but dies at day break ,
Let the black faces be painted even darker;
Let this night be spirited till morn;
