A short poem-Omar Khayyam

It's been some time since I last posted some real poetry. Here's a quick one by Omar Khayyam, translated into this fantastic English:

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!

Hope you enjoyed. Thoughts? Other favorite poetry and verses?
