That ev'n my buried Ashes such a Snareby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
That ev'n my buried Ashes such a Snare
Of Perfume shall fling up into the Air,
As not a True Believer passing by
But shall be overtaken unaware.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
