Happy Monday everyone…
Wow, we are in double digits now and I am afraid, our Mondays with Khayyam shall soon come to an end.
You might be asking by now: What is Paradise like?
Khayyam draws it up for us:
Rubaiyat (Quatrain Poem) in Farsi (in my handwriting), followed by Fitzgerald’s rendering. The illustration is by Hossein Behzad.
Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, A book of Verse-and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness –
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.
Read Slowly, Reflect Deeply, Enjoy Immensely
