continue... Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

The same door

Myself when young did eagerly frequent
Doctor and Saint, and heard great Argument
About it and about; but evermore
Came out by the same door where in I went.

With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with mine own hand wrought to make it grow:
And this was all the Harvest that I reap’d –
“I came like Water, and like Wind I go.”
