translations by Edward FitzGerald:

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough

Ah my beloved fill the cup that clears

And lately, by the Tavern Door agape

And not a drop that from our Cups we throw

Come, fill the Cup, and in the fire of Spring
Indeed the Idols I have loved so long

Waste not your Hour, nor in the vain pursuit
Yon rising Moon that looks for us again

Omar Khayyam (1048-1131), Persian poet
translated by Edward FitzGerald (1809-1883), English poet

And this I know: whether the one True Light
Kindle to Love, or Wrath consume me quite,
       One Flash of It within the Tavern caught
Better than in the Temple lost outright.
