[24] Alike for those who for To-day prepare

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Alike for those who for To-day prepare,
And those that after some To-morrow stare,
     A Muezzin from the Tower of Darkness cries
"Fools! Your Reward is neither Here nor There!"

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