[37] Ah, fill the Cup: -- what boots it to repeat

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Ah, fill the Cup: -- what boots it to repeat
How Time is slipping underneath our Feet:
     Unborn To-morrow, and dead Yesterday,
Why fret about them if To-day be sweet!

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