Omar Khayyam’s verse:

What without asking, hither hurried whence?

And, without asking, whither hurried hence!

Another and another Cup to drown

The Memory of this Impertinence!

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Up from Earth’s Centre through the seventh Gate

I rose, and on the Throne of Saturn sate,

And many Knots unravel’d by the Road;

But not the Knot of Human Death and Fate.

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Then to this earthern Bowl did I adjourn

My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:

And Lip to Lip it murmur’d – “While you live,

Drink! – for once dead you never shall return.”

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

I think the Vessel, that with fugitive

Articulation answer’d, once did live,

And merry-make; and the cold Lip I kiss’d

How many kisses might it take – and give.

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Ah, fill the Cup: – what boots it to repeat

How Time is slipping underneath our Feet:

Unborn ‘To-morrow’ and dead ‘Yesterday’,

Why fret about them if ‘To-day’ be sweet!
