In this series of poems, I'll gather the great philosophical poet, known as Khayyam's poems
his poetry is simple, short and deep




Long time in wine and rose I took delight,
But then my business never went aright;
Since wine could not accomplish my desire,
I have abandoned and forsworn it quite.

عمری به گل و باده برفتیم بگشت
یک کار من از دور جهان راست نگشت
از می چو شند هیچ مرادی حاصل
از هرچه گذشتیم گذشتیم گذشت
