N. STRIJKOV: "Sure, Essence of Yours..."

"Sure, Essence of Yours..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
Sure, essence of yours is quite locked from my mind,
My submission, rebellion – are none in your sight.
I, sunk in the great sins, live with hope alone:
The compassionate one, you'll forgive your slave blind.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
