[60] And, strange to tell, among that Earthen Lot

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

And, strange to tell, among that Earthen Lot
Some could articulate, while others not:
     And suddenly one more impatient cried --
"Who is the Potter, pray, and who the Pot?"

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