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




Men's lusts, like house-dogs, still the house distress
With clamor, barking for mere wantonness;
Foxes are they, and sleep the sleep of hares;
Crafty as wolves, as tigers pitiless.

نفست بسگ خانه همی ماند راست
جز بانگ میان تهی از او هیچ نخواست
روبه صفتست و خواب خرگوش دهد
آشوب پلنگ دارد و گرگ دغاست
