Fill the Cup

OmarKhayyamXX.
“Ah, my Belovéd, fill the Cup that clears
To-day of past Regrets and future Fears–
To-morrow? – Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday’s Sev’n Thousands Years.
XXI.
“Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and the best
That Time and Fate of all their Vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to Rest.
XXIX.
“Into this Universe, and why, not knowing,
Nor whence, like Water willy-nilly flowing:
And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,
I know not whither, willy-nilly blowing.
XXXIV.
“Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmur’d–’While you live
Drink! for once dead you never shall return.'”
Omar Khayyam

Crying in the Autumn

Red coated leaves like soldiers,

Fall,

In a last salute to the sky,

Dead.
