                                              Come, fill the Cup, and in the fire of Spring 
                                              Your Winter-garment of Repentance fling: 
                                              The Bird of Time has but a little way 
                                              To flutter–and the Bird is on the Wing. 

                                                                                          The Rubaiyat, VII by Omar Khayyam
