    • c. 800, Abū Nuwās, طَرِبَ الشيْخُ فغنّى واصْطبحْ:
      طَرِبَ الشيْخُ فغنّى، واصْطبحْ
      من عُقارٍ تُنهبُ الهمّ الفَرَحْ
      أخَذتْ من كلّ شيءٍ لَوْنَهــا،
      هي في ناجودها قوْسُ قُزَحْ
      شيْخُ لذّاتٍ، نقِيٌّ عِرْضُهُ،
      تحْسُنُ الأشعارُ فيه، والمِدَحْ.
      لا تراهُ الدّهْرُ إلاّ ثَمِلاً،
      بينَ إبْريقٍ، وزِقٍّ، وقدَحْ
      ṭariba aš-šayḵu fa-ġannā, wa-iṣṭabaḥ
      min ʿuqārin tunhabu l-hamma l-faraḥ
      ʾaḵaḏat min kulli šayʾin lawna-hā
      hiya fī nājūdi-hā qawsu quzaḥ.
      šayḵu laḏḏātin, naqiyyun irḍu-hū
      taḥsunu al-ʾašʿāru fī-hi, wa-l-midaḥ,
      la tarā-hu ad-dahru illā ṯamilan,
      bayna ʾibrīqin, wa-ziqqin, wa-qadaḥ.
      The shaykh gleed and sang and craved more booze
      forthy delight removes the sorrow.
      He obtained from every thing its hues
      and his cup exposed a rainbow.
      Shaykh of bliss, no way blammed,
      The notes of him are merry, fele to plaud,
      Fate sees him not but slammed,
      betwixe ewer and wineskin, beaker-pawed.
