Khayyam The Philosophical poet | رباعیات خیام |Poem #70+ English Translation

in #poetry4 years ago

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

Tis but a day we sojourn here below,
And all the gain we get is grief and woe,
Then, leaving our life's riddles all unsolved,
And burdened with regrets, we have to go.

این دهر که بُود مُدّتی منزلِ ما
نامد بجز از بلا وغم حاصلِ ما
افسُوس که حل نگشت یک مشکلِ ما
رفتیم و هزار حسرت اندر دلِ ما
