[35] I think the Vessel, that with fugitive

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

I think the Vessel, that with fugitive
Articulation answer'd, once did live,
     And merry-make, and the cold Lip I kiss'd,
How many Kisses might it take -- and give!

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