[36] For in the Market-place, one Dusk of Day

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

For in the Market-place, one Dusk of Day,
I watch'd the Potter thumping his wet Clay:
     And with its all obliterated Tongue
It murmur'd -- "Gently, Brother, gently, pray!"

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