Ad domum, ut possim dormire.

Exercise in Song Double-entry

Show me home; direct me there.
I'm tired and I want to go to bed.
I had a drink before and supped some time ago:

You will hear my voice and notice my song:
Show me there; direct me home.

Exercise in Song Polyptotes

I haven’t yet drunk my fill
Of drinking till I start feeling ill.
Still, every drinker ought to have somewhere called home:
Will I drink to that? I will.

I drank up foreign lands,
Crossing drunken seas, hot sands.
Yet my drunkenness repeats its refrain:
Give it the drinks it demands!
