With Earth's first Clay They did the Last Man kneadby 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.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
