Rubaiyat (1)Wake! For The Sun....Omar Khayyam

Wake! For the Sun, who scatter'd into flight
The Stars before him from the Field of Night,
Drives Night along with them from Heav'n, and strikes
The Sultan's Turret with a Shaft of Light.

Hindi Translation by Rajnish Manga follows:

सूरज उगा है रात के सब चिन्ह धुंधलाने लगे
तारे भी अपना कारवाँ ले कर के हैं जाने लगे
आकाश पर छाया उजाला, रोशनी में सूर्य की
सल्तनत के महल ज्यों हीरों को शरमाने लगे

For a while I wondered if Khayyam translated your quatrain and came out wanting, but it was you that did it, with expressions so haunting. Kudos dear poet.

Another fine stanza from the 'Rubaiyat'. A striking picture of the sun, moon and stars, then locating the poem in the East, ' The Sultan's Turret'.
