#Haiku: Claret


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

come sip the Claret

with ruby lips savoring

anguish falls away


Linda Lee Lyberg

My response to Carpe Diem #1232 past regrets and future fears

Here is the quatrain Chèvrefeuille has given us to work with:

Ah! my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears
TO-DAY of past Regrets and future Fears –
To-morrow? – Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday’s Sev’n Thousand Years.

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
