[54] I tell Thee this -- When, starting from the Goal

by 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
