Ah Love! could thou and I with Fate conspireby Omar Khayyam
English version by Edward FitzGerald
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Ah Love! could thou and I with Fate conspire
To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
Would not we shatter it to bits -- and then
Re-mould it nearer to the Heart's Desire!
|-- from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, by Omar Khayyam / Translated by Edward FitzGerald|
