Poem....Ah, my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears....OMAR Khayyam 11 century poet 9/6/10

Ah, my Beloved, fill the Cup

Ah, my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears
To-day of past Regrets and future Fears -
To-morrow? -
Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday’s Sev’n Thousand Years

Never Blows So Red

I sometimes think that never blows so red

The rose as where some buried Caesar bled.

That every hyacinth the garden wears;

Dropt in her lap from some once lovely head.
