[21] Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and best

by 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
