[31] Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate
I rose, and on the Throne of Saturn sate,
     And many Knots unravel'd by the Road;
But not the Master-Knot of Human Fate.

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