[3] And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
     "You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more."

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