Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with mine own hand wrought to make it grow;
And this was all the Harvest that I reap`d -
"I came like Water, and like Wind I go."

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
