Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

When You and I behind the Veil are past,
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

When You and I behind the Veil are past,
Oh, but the long, long while the World shall last,
Which of our Coming and Departure heeds
As the Sea`s self should heed a pebble - cast.

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
