A quatrain from Khayyam and one written by me..

LXXIII. A quartrain by Omar Khayyam from
his immortal Rubiyyat of Omar Khayyam
translated by Edward Fitzgerald
.
Ah, Love! could thou and I with Fate conspire
.
To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
.
Would not we shatter it to bits–and then
.
Re-mould it nearer to the Heart’s Desire!
.
*******
No 132. A quartrain by Deepak Menon from his book of
Poetry – Tamam Shudh – Poems of Passion
.
Many a time have I made strong my resolve
.
To seek an answer – the great mystery to solve
.
As to why HE who gives and takes all
.
Decreed that the puzzle of life – remain unsolv’d?
