N. STRIJKOV: "That Good Potter..."

"That Good Potter..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
That good potter who shaped cups of our heads,
Did excel in his art all the others craft’s lads.
On a table of world he toppled over the bowl,
And filled it with great passions, without regrets.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
