[30] What, without asking, hither hurried whence?

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

What, without asking, hither hurried whence?
And, without asking, whither hurried hence!
     Another and another Cup to drown
The Memory of this Impertinence!

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