And that inverted Bowl we call The Skyby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop't we live and die,
Lift not thy hands to it for help -- for It
Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
