From the twisted vine

a shroud made of tender leaves

washed in the grape’s blood

Carpe Diem #1312 The Grape

Here is the quatrain from The Rubaiyat:

Ah, with the Grape my fading Life provide,
And wash my Body whence the life has died,
And in a Winding Sheet of Vine Leaf wrapt,
So bury me by some sweet Gardenside.

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
