White Hand of Moses

White Hand of Moses

Carpe Diem #1297 White Hand of Moses

This is verse four from the Rubaiyat

Now the New Year reviving old Desires,
The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,
Where the WHITE HAND OF MOSES on the Bough
Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires.

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

the lion heart of winter
fades with the breath of the lamb
spring blossoms burst forth


forgotten desires awake
the first blush of spring reminds
boon of solitude
