Translation by Edward Fitzgerald (1809 - 1883)

Morning a thousand Roses brings, you say
Language: English  after the Persian (Farsi) 
Morning a thousand Roses brings, you say;
Yes, but where leaves the Rose of yesterday?
And this first Summer month that brings the Rose
Shall take Jamshýd and Kaikobád away.
