    I fell in love with Omar Khyyam's poems when I was a teen, long, long ago. The beauty and truth in his poems have stayed with me, helped me through life. As an American Indian who follows our ancient tribal Spiritual ways, the beauty and truth within Omar Khyam's poetry is undeniable, regardless of what religion or spiritual path an individual follows. Beauty and truth... undeniable.

    Omar Khayyam was a most voluptuous Persian poet who stunned the literati of the Western world; he is remembered chiefly for his overflowing emotionalism in which is deeply drenched his poetic works. Decades earlier I had read Khayyam and was really upgraded in my emotions. Rose, Lips, Cup, Cup-server, Rolling Eyes symbolize something practical in life in Khayyam's poetry.

Best Poem of Omar Khayyam

The Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam

<i>Translated into English in 1859 by Edward FitzGerald</i>

Awake! for Morning in the Bowl of Night
Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight:
And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught
The Sultan's Turret in a Noose of Light.

Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky
I heard a voice within the Tavern cry,
'Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup
Before Life's Liquor in its Cup be dry.'

And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted - 'Open then the Door!
You know how little while we ...
