Birds aflame with spring
Brooks overflowing with joy
This cup cometh

 Carpe Diem #1298 Fire of Spring

We continue  exploring “The Rubaiyat” by Omar Khayyam and today Chèvrefeuille has focused on quatrain 7; ‘Fire of Spring’,  quoted  from the quatrain:

Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly – and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
