[69] Indeed the Idols I have loved so long

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Indeed the Idols I have loved so long
Have done my Credit in Men's Eye much wrong:
     Have drown'd my Honour in a shallow Cup,
And sold my Reputation for a Song.

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