Rubaiyat#11-Bread beneath the Bough

Rubaiyat#11-Bread beneath the Bough

Here with a loaf of bread beneath the bough,
A flask of wine, a book of verse,- and Thou
Beside me singing in the wilderness-
And the wilderness is paradise enow.

(Edward Fitzgerald translation-first ed.,)

I am a Dutch citizen. An architect by profession I am married and have six grandchildren. I am still keen on expressing myself and each day is new and an occasion where I might bring out from within something worthwhile.
