Prologue

 This edition contains the crème de la crème of my Omaresque style quatrains. Inspired by Omar, I have endeavored to capture his spirit for more modern times, although I have surely been influenced by Edward FitzGeralds translated gems.

 There is a companion prose version, The Triumph of Life, Love, and Being, in which a loving couple take a long, picaresque journey through the countryside to explore the joys and follies of the human condition, living out the quatrains.
