[53] With Earth's first Clay They did the Last Man knead

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

With Earth's first Clay They did the Last Man knead,
And then of the Last Harvest sow'd the Seed:
     Yea, the first Morning of Creation wrote
What the Last Dawn of Reckoning shall read.
