  1. “Without wine, purple flowers cannot grow” is a lovely twist to the line from Khayyam. However, the original line in most manuscripts reads “bi bade-ye golrang nami shayad zist”, it is not seemly to live without rose-colored wine. In other words, spring showers have watered the grass and soon flowers will grow. In such a season it is not seemly to live without rose-colored wine.
