See You Have Dancers

See you have dancers and wine and a girl like one of the angels
(If they exist),
And find a clear stream singing near its birth and a bed of moss
(If moss exists),
For loving and singing to the dancers and drinking and forgetting hell
(If hell exists),
Because this is a pastime better than paradise
(If paradise exists).


From the Persian of Omar Khayyam (eleventh century).

(The end)
Edward Powys Mathers's poem: See You Have Dancers

The Sighing Heart
I made search for you all my life, and when I found youThere came a trouble on me,So that it seemed my blood escapedAnd my life ran back from meAnd my heart slipped into you.It seems, also, that you are the moonAnd that I am at the top of a tree.If I had wings I would spread them as far as you,Dear bud, that will not openThough the kisses of the holy bird knock at your petal door.Song of Siam.(The end)Edward Powys Mathers's poem: Sighing Heart
