On A Goblet

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

There's Death in the cup, so beware!
Nay, more - there is danger in touching!
But who can avoid the fell snare?
The man and his wine's so bewitching!

 

There is Death in the cup, so beware!
No, more - there is danger in touching!
But who can avoid the cruel snare?
The man and his wine is so bewitching!
