Lamii (Mohammed Ben Osman Ben Ali Nakkash)

Poems from Oriental Languages: Epigram: ‘Get silver ice’

(Turkish—Sixteenth Century)

Translation in Dublin University Magazine

GET silver ice, O jeweler, to cool thy golden wine;

It grows too fierce and heady:

So spake the guest. No, quoth his host,—this ruby, I opine,

Is cold enough already.
