Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Springby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly -- and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
