I tell Thee this -- When, starting from the Goalby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
I tell Thee this -- When, starting from the Goal,
Over the shoulders of the flaming Foal
Of Heav'n Parwin and Mushtari they flung,
In my predestin'd Plot of Dust and Soul.
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
