I sometimes think that never blows so redby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
I sometimes think that never blows so red
The Rose as where some buried Caesar bled;
That every Hyacinth the Garden wears
Dropt in its Lap from some once lovely Head.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
