Omar Khayyam’s verse:

And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before

The Tavern shouted – “Open then the Door.

You know how little while have to stay,

And, once departed, may return no more.”

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

I sometimes think that never blows so red

The Rose as where some buried Caesar bled;

That every Hyacinth the Garden wears

Dropt in its Lap from some once lovely Head.

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

And this delightful Herb whose tender green

Fledges the River’s Lip on which we lean –

Ah, lean upon it lightly! For who knows

From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,

Before we too into the Dust Descend;

Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,

Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer and – sans End!

Omar Khayyam’s verse:

Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the Wise

To talk; one thing is certain, that Life flies;

One thing is certain, and the Rest is lies;

The Flower that once has blown for ever dies.
