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.




Fitzgerald’s Rendering:

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
