Translations of Selected Quatrains from Khayyám's Rubáiyát from Farsi

By Sahand Rabbani


The world saw no profit from my becoming;
Nor its splendor and nobility augmented by my leaving.
There is no one from whom both mine ears have heard
What purpose did serve my coming and going.

El mundo no sacó ganancia de mi venida;
Ni aumentó su esplendor y nobleza mi salida.
De nadie han oído mis dos oídos:
¿Qué propósito sirvieron mi llegada e ida?

از آمدنم نبود گردون را سود
از رفتن من جاه و جلالش نفزود
وز هیچ کسی نیز دو گوشم نشنود
کاین آمدن و رفتنم از بهر چه بود؟
