the way you tease me often

Blog hopping today with

Carpe Diem #1306 The Secret Well of Life

Kristjaan has prompted us today with a Quatrain from the Rubiat of Omar Khayyam

Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmured - "While you live
Drink ! - for once dead you never shall return.
