And look -- a thousand Blossoms with the Dayby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
And look -- a thousand Blossoms with the Day
Woke -- and a thousand scatter'd into Clay:
And this first Summer Month that brings the Rose
Shall take Jamshyd and Kaikobad away.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
