Rubaiyat

Awake! for morningin the bowl of night
 
Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight:
 
 And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught
 
 The Sultan's Turret in a Noose of Light.

Edward FitzGerald
Born     31 March 1809
Died     14 June 1883 (aged 74)
Notable work(s) English translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Beginning in 1859, FitzGerald authorized four editions and had a fifth posthumous edition of his translation of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (Persian: رباعیات عمر خیام‎), of which three (the first, second, and fifth) differ significantly; the second and third are almost identical, as are the fourth and fifth. The first and fifth editions are almost equally reprinted and equally often anthologized.
 
   
A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
    A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread—and Thou
    Beside me singing in the Wilderness—
    Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!
