[70] Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before

by 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
