[8] And look -- a thousand Blossoms with the Day

by 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
