The cup created masterfully for you to take
Even a drunk consider impertinent to break

So many beautiful heads and feet, from top to toe
Created by whose love, shattered by whose woe

My translation of one of my favourite quatrains by Khayyam:

ترکیب پیاله‌ای که درهم پیوست
بشکستن آن روا نمیدارد مست

چندین سر و پای نازنین از سر و دست
از مهر که پیوست و به کین که شکست
