Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám Jr. by Wallace Irwin

This poem is by the fictional son of Omar Khayyám. The author praises smoking over drinking alcohol, and also praises the benefits of kissing women. This book has some wonderful illustrations by Gelett Burgess. This is my 36th Project Guttenberg title.

Also by same author:
Love Sonnets of a Hoodlum
Love Sonnets of a Car Conductor

Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám
I wear Tobacchanalian Wreaths of Smoke
Acelphalous Time to Febrous Lengths bestirred
I've Hurtled Beauty to a State Forlorn
This Vision comes of Pie - not Piety
Oh, how can you Respect me after This?
The Astral Turrets where the Patient wake
The How is swiftly mingling with the When
Havana's Witch-Fog murks my Horoscope
