Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

But if in vain, down on the stubborn floor
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

But if in vain, down on the stubborn floor
Of Earth, and up to Heav`n`s unopening Door
You gaze TO - DAY, while You are You - how then
TO - MORROW, when You shall be You no more?

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
