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!

(The Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam – ancient Persian {Iran} literature)

And Couples, wine and song, – young lovers
Celebrating in the Spring of Youth –
And Dance it all together.
