[19] And this delightful Herb whose tender Green

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

And this delightful Herb whose tender Green
Fledges the River's Lip on which we lean --
     Ah, lean upon it lightly! for who knows
From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald
