Excerpt from Quatrains of Omar Khayyam: In English Prose
Behold the dawn. Rise, boy, and fill with red wine the white vessel, for you may seek here after, and seek in vain, this one fair hour which a world of shadows lends you.
Seize the cup in your hand as soon as the yellow dawn appears. Truth is sharp, it has been said, in the mouth of mankind; for this cause it may be that wine is very truth.
