Rubaiyat#20 Oh, For the cup of oblivion!

Rubaiyat#20  Oh, For the cup of oblivion!

Ah, my beloved, fill the cup that clears
Today of past regrets and future fears-
Tomorrow?-why tomorrow I may be
Myself with yesterday’s sev’n thousand years.
(Edward Fitzgerald translation)

About bennythomas

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.
