Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Then to the Lip of this poor earthen Urn
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Then to the Lip of this poor earthen Urn
I lean`d, the Secret of my Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmur`d - "While you live,
"Drink! - for, once dead, you never shall return."

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
