Omar Khayyam (138) “Don’t throw your precious lives to the wind…”

Don’t fall for this world’s
enticements, you amateurs!
You know all about its tricks.
Don’t throw your precious lives
to the wind.
Get yourself a lover
and open a bottle of wine.

Translated by Juan Cole
from Omar Khayyam’s Rubaiyat
