[55] The Vine has struck a fiber: which about

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The Vine has struck a fiber: which about
If clings my Being -- let the Dervish flout;
     Of my Base metal may be filed a Key,
That shall unlock the Door he howls without.

-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald
