[62] Another said -- "Why, ne'er a peevish Boy

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Another said -- "Why, ne'er a peevish Boy,
Would break the Bowl from which he drank in Joy;
     Shall He that made the vessel in pure Love
And Fancy, in an after Rage destroy?"

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