Khayyam The Philosophical poet | رباعیات خیام |Poem #56 + English Translation
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
