[29] Into this Universe, and Why not knowing

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Into this Universe, and Why not knowing,
Nor Whence, like Water willy-nilly flowing:
     And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,
I know not Whither, willy-nilly blowing.

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