[2] Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky
I heard a voice within the Tavern cry,
     "Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup
Before Life's Liquor in its Cup be dry."

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