    Perhaps this is not so much a translation as a rendering in Scots. Rab Wilson's quatrains tackle the same themes as the original Ruba'iya't but with a Scottish take, not only in language but also in tone and reference. It shows that the fundamental problems of everyday existence have not really changed for any of us over the last thousand years.
