[16] Think, in this batter'd Caravanserai

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Think, in this batter'd Caravanserai
Whose Doorways are alternate Night and Day,
     How Sultan after Sultan with his Pomp
Abode his Hour or two and went his way.

-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald
