Hard to come by

Now that the rose of your
good fortune is blooming,
why are you standing there
with no glass in your hand?
Have some wine–
fate is a treacherous enemy,
And a day like this
is hard to come by.

~Omar Khayyám (trans. Juan Cole)

(and thanks to Lisa, who passed this along. A strong woman, who does not seek her? Her worth is far above that of rubies.)
