Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft beforeby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before
I swore -- but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand
My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
