Fire of Spring

Fire of Spring

Carpe Diem #1298 Fire of Spring

Rubaiyat  –  quatrain  7

Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly – and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

 

fire of spring
swiftly melts through
winter’s solitude

lenten roses bloom
winter’s garments shed
for the voice of spring
