While the Rose blows along the River Brinkby 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|
