[50] The Ball no Question makes of Ayes and Noes

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The Ball no Question makes of Ayes and Noes,
But Right or Left, as strikes the Player goes;
     And he that toss'd Thee down into the Field,
He knows about it all -- He knows -- HE knows!

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