The Rubaiyat

The Rubaiyat

Carpe Diem #1294 Twilight 

Here is the first quatrain of “The Rubaiyat”:

AWAKE! For Morning in the Bowl of Night
Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight:
And lo! the Hunter of the East has caught
The Sultan’s Turret in a Noose of Light. 

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. Fitzgerald)

This verse For some reason reminded me of Orio and Scorpios mythology

the winter hunter
at spring’s approach
chased from the sky

The first shafts of light
pierce the veil of darkness
shroud lifting
