[63] None answer'd this; but after Silence spake

by Omar Khayyam

English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi

None answer'd this; but after Silence spake
A Vessel of a more ungainly Make:
     "They sneer at me for leaning all awry;
What! did the Hand then of the Potter shake?"

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