Rubaiyat#53-Fifth edition What'll You when Unmade?

But if in vain, down on the stubborn floor
Of Earth, and up to Heav’n’s unopening door,
You gaze today, while you are you-how then
Tomorrow, you when shall you be no more?
(Edward Fitzgerald translation-fifth 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.
