[73] Ah Love! could thou and I with Fate conspire

by 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
