Long ago a crowd of old men met together in a public house. After a while one man of the crowd would ask another what would he have and he answered a pint. They had a certain kind of glass called a pewter and when this was full it was left on the counter and one of the men took it up and said

Wishing it was wine,

And not forgetting mine.
