Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English

Would but the Desert of the Fountain yield
 | Omar Khayyam | Rubaiyat in English

Would but the Desert of the Fountain yield
One glimpse - if dimly, yet indeed, reveal`d,
To which the fainting Traveller might spring,
As springs the trampled herbage of the field!

Translation: Edward FitzGerald
