Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Earth could not answer; nor the Seas that mourn
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Earth could not answer; nor the Seas that mourn
In flowing Purple, of their Lord forlorn;
Nor rolling Heaven, with all his Signs reveal`d
And hidden by the sleeve of Night and Morn.

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
