[53 - later edition] I sent my Soul through the Invisible

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
Some letter of that After-life to spell:
     And after many days my Soul return'd
And said, "Behold, Myself am Heav'n and Hell."
