Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

The Ball no question makes of Ayes and Noes,
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

The Ball no question makes of Ayes and Noes,
But Here or There as strikes the Player goes;
And He that toss`d you down into the Field,
He knows about it all - HE knows - HE knows!
