Khayyamiyat..


I believe its high time to show you the first 3 Rubaiyat I got to hear for Omer el khayyam..
As I said previously, it was in a radio show called “fragile moments” *wish I could put in the music that was there at the background*…
Anyways, its in the exact order the presenter recited them..
And don’t forget to tell me what you think…


A Hair perhaps divides the False and True;
Yes; and a single Alif were the clue--
Could you but find it--to the Treasure-house,
And peradventure to THE MASTER too;

Whose secret Presence through Creation's veins
Running Quicksilver-like eludes your pains;
Taking all shapes from Mah to Mahi and
They change and perish all--but He remains;

Strange, is it not? that of the myriads who
Before us pass'd the door of Darkness through,
Not one returns to tell us of the Road,
Which to discover we must travel too.


More to come of “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam”
Translated by Edward J. Fitzgerald



Time to go… 73’s
