Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Yet Ah, that Spring should vanish with the Rose!
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Yet Ah, that Spring should vanish with the Rose!
That Youth`s sweet - scented manuscript should close!
The Nightingale that in the branches sang,
Ah whence, and whither flown again, who knows!

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
