[39] How long, how long, in infinite Pursuit

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

How long, how long, in infinite Pursuit
Of This and That endeavour and dispute?
     Better be merry with the fruitful Grape
Than sadden after none, or bitter, Fruit.
