“Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate I rose, and on the Throne of Saturn sate; And many a Knot unravel'd by the Road; But not the Master-knot of Human Fate.
There was the Door to which I found no Key; There was the Veil through which I might not see Some little talk awhile of ME and THEE There was -- and then no more of THEE and ME.
Earth could not answer; nor the Seas that mourn In flowing Purple, of their Lord forlorn; Nor rolling Heaven, with all his Signs reveal'd And hidden by the sleeve of Night and Morn.
Then of THEE in ME who works behind The Veil, I lifted up my hands to find A Lamp amid the darkness; and I heard, As from Without -- 'The ME within THEE blind!”
-- Omar Khayyam
