Omar Khayyam, the great Persian ‘FOUR IN ONE” ( born on 18th May)
A great man was born yesterday in eighteen not nine
In Persia took birth- great birth of ‘four in one’ fine
Mathematician, philosopher, great poet
Astronomer- gave Rubaiyat in Persian quiet!
Profound philosophy gave in a way fantastic
On destiny-“Moving fingers writing” artistic
And having writ moving on-neither piety nor will
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line nor one’s all
Tears can wash out a word of it” wisdom golden
Translated in languages many –soothing maiden!
Parallels many in all the religions around
To take it serious to be at peace- peace abound
Man needs peace and joy- his philosophy helps quite sure
We bow to the ‘great ‘four in one’ Omar Khayyam pure!
