River’s lip

River’s lip

Carpe Diem #1301 River’s Lip

19th verse of “The Rubaiyat”

And this delightful Herb whose tender Green
Fledges the River’s Lip on which we lean –
Ah, lean upon it lightly! for who knows
From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

 

at the river’s mouth
we dance upon the silt
of unsung souls
