[65] Then said another with a long-drawn Sigh

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Then said another with a long-drawn Sigh,
"My Clay with long oblivion is gone dry:
     "But, fill me with the old familiar Juice,
"Methinks I might recover by-and-by!"
