A book of verse

Your humble host is unsure how this little gem had not yet been mentioned in this Garden – it has one of the most well-known poetic phrases of all time!

A book of verse, underneath the bough,
A jug of wine, a loaf of bread – and thou
Beside me singing in the wilderness –
Ah, wilderness were paradise now!

 

(Omar  Khayyam)
