[48] While the Rose blows along the River Brink

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

While the Rose blows along the River Brink,
With old Khayyam and Ruby Vintage drink:
     And when the Angel with his darker Draught
Draws up to Thee -- take that, and do not shrink.

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