O. RUMER: "Just Drink!..."

"Just Drink!..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
Just drink! A lot of pine will fall on your age humble,
Coincidence of stars will often nations trouble;
When we shall die, they’ll use our dust for building blocks,
And one will build from them a palace, white as marble.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
