With them the Seed of Wisdom did I sowby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
With them the Seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with my own hand labour'd it to grow:
And this was all the Harvest that I reap'd --
"I came like Water and like Wind I go."
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
