Long Live Have-a-Drink!

We present this work in honor of the 105th anniversary of the poet’s death.

03-08 Pondal
Eduardo Pondal
1835 – 1917


My good friends, liven up!
He who shrivels up shatters his spirit;
Let whoever wishes to drink drink,
Let whoever wishes to live live
And drink… and long live Have-a-Drink!


Translation by Eduardo Freire Canosa
