The Vine has struck a fiber: which aboutby 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|
