[28] With them the Seed of Wisdom did I sow

by 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
