[57] Oh Thou, who didst with Pitfall and with gin

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Oh Thou, who didst with Pitfall and with gin
Beset the Road I was to wander in,
     Thou will not with Predestin'd Evil round
Enmesh me, and impute my Fall to Sin?
