Translations of Selected Quatrains from Khayyám's Rubáiyát from Farsi

By Sahand Rabbani

From the tales of the travelers of this long track,
Where is the seasoned traveler whose wisdom we lack?
"Hark! When you come across this fork in the path,
"Leave nothing out of parsimony: you will ne'er turn back."
از جمله رفتگان این راه دراز
باز آمده اي كو كه بما گويد راز
هان برسر اين دو راهه راز و نياز
چیزی نگذاري كه نمیایی باز
