Happy Monday to All!
Khayyam finally comes to his conclusion of what heaven and hell are really about:
Rubaiyat (Quatrain Poem) in Farsi (in my handwriting), followed by Fitzgerald’s rendering. The illustration is by Hossein Behzad.
Heav’n but the Vision of Fullfill’d Desire,
And Hell the Shadow of a soul on fire,
Cast on the Darkness into which Ourselves,
So late emerg’d from, shall so soon expire.
Read Slowly, Reflect Deeply, Enjoy Immensely
