[46 - later edition] Why, be this Juice the growth of God, who dare Why, be this Juice the growth of God, who dare

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Why, be this Juice the growth of God, who dare
Blaspheme the twisted tendril as Snare?
     A Blessing, we should use it, should we not?
And if a Curse -- why, then, Who set it there?

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