O. RUMER: "Sight of Four Elements..."

"Sight of Four Elements..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
Sight of four elements, just understand the matter,
You have received from world without flatter!
You’re animal and man; you’re white angel and black;
All what you’re seemed, in you in secret settled.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
