[67] Ah, with the Grape my fading Life provide

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Ah, with the Grape my fading Life provide,
And wash my Body whence the Life has died,
     And in the Windingsheet of Vine-leaf wrapt,
So bury me by some sweet Garden-side.

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