Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and bestby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and best
That Time and Fate of all their Vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to Rest.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
