Ah, with the Grape my fading Life provideby 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|
