Omar Khayyam, mathematician, philosopher and Persian poet wrote his four-line poems almost one thousand years ago. The importance of his message is relevant for our time. Many have undertaken the task of translating Khayyam’s poetry. Iranian scientist and artist Mahdi Ahmadi and musician and poet Dan Rein have created a translation that remains true to Khayyam’s poetic images.
