Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

And much as Wine has play`d the Infidel,
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

And much as Wine has play`d the Infidel,
And robb`d me of my Robe of Honour - Well,
I wonder often what the Vintners buy
One half so precious as the stuff they sell.

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
