[23] Ah, make the most of what we may yet spend

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Ah, make the most of what we may yet spend,
Before we too into the Dust descend;
     Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie;
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and -- sans End!

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