Rubaiyat#51 The Moving Finger

Rubaiyat#51 The Moving Finger

The moving finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on; nor all thy piety nor wit
Shall lure it to cancel half a line,
Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
(Edward Fitzgerald translation-first edition)

About bennythomas

I am a Dutch citizen. An architect by profession I am married and have six grandchildren. I am still keen on expressing myself and each day is new and an occasion where I might bring out from within something worthwhile.
