Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Into this Universe, and Why not knowing
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Into this Universe, and Why not knowing
Nor Whence, like Water willy - nilly flowing;
And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,
I know not Whither, willy-nilly blowing.

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
