[22] And we, that now make merry in the Room

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

And we, that now make merry in the Room
They left, and Summer dresses in new Bloom,
     Ourselves must we beneath the Couch of Earth
Descend, ourselves to make a Couch -- for whom?

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