Oh Thou, who didst with Pitfall and with ginby 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?
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
