Translations of Selected Quatrains from Khayyám's Rubáiyát from Farsi

By Sahand Rabbani

Some contemplate the way of piety;
Others assume doubt with certainty.
Suddenly a herald cries from his lair:
"O ignorant souls! neither path is reality."
قومی متفکرند اندر ره دین
قومی به گمان فتاده در راه یقین
میترسم از آن که بانگ آید روزی
کای بیخبران راه نه آنست و نه این
