Rubaiyat 41 - Poem by Shams al-Din Hafiz Shirazi

I wish that fate would cease this carnage,
And to the lovers give their due wage.
In times of youth the rein in my hands,
Now on the saddle, I ride in old age.

    Great write...... Patience is key to success...
    In times of youth the rein in my hands,
    Now on the saddle, I ride in old age.
