And those who husbanded the Golden Grainby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
And those who husbanded the Golden Grain,
And those who flung it to the Winds like Rain,
Alike to no such aureate Earth are turn'd
As, buried once, Men want dug up again.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
