Omar Khayyam’s verse:

The Vine had struck a Fibre; which about

It clings my Being – let the Sufi flout;

Of my Base Metal may be filed a Key,

That shall unlock the Door he howls without.

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Oh Thou who didst with Pitfall and with Gin

Beset the Road I was to wander in,

Thou wilt not with Predestination round

Enmesh me, and impute my Fall to Sin?

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Another said – “Why ne’er a peevish Boy

Would break the Bowl from which he drank in Joy;

Shall He that made the Vessel in pure Love

And Fancy, in an after Rage destroy!”

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Said one – “Folks of a surly Tapster tell,

And daub his Visage with the Smoke of Hell;

They talk of some strict Testing of us – Pish!

He’s a Good Fellow, and ‘twill all be well.”

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Ah, with the Grape my fading Life provide,

And wash my Body whence the life has died,

And in a Windingsheet of Vineleaf wrapt,

So bury me by some sweet Gardenside.
