by Hakim Omar Khayyám (c1048 - c1122)
Translation by Edward Fitzgerald (1809 - 1883)

Perplext no more with Human or Divine
Language: English  after the Persian (Farsi) 
Perplext no more with Human or Divine, 
To-morrow's tangle to the winds resign,
And lose your fingers in the tresses of 
The Cypress-slender Minister of Wine.
