Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

I must abjure the Balm of Life, I must,
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

I must abjure the Balm of Life, I must,
Scared by some After - reckoning ta`en on trust,
Or lured with Hope of some Diviner Drink,
To fill the Cup - when crumbled into Dust!

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
