And when Thyself with shining Foot shall pass
Among the Guests Star-scatter'd on the Grass,
And in thy joyous Errand reach the Spot
Where I made one—turn down an empty Glass!

- from the Fitzgerald translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

Very cool. I like that a lot. It really pops.

I like the jewels coming bursting from the fingertips ... and the Rubaiyat - love it. I was introduced when I did the play "Ah, Wilderderness" and the main character quoted "A book of verses, underneath a bough -- a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou - beside me, singing in the wilderness." Love that.
