This Universal wheel, this merry-go-round In our imagination we have found The sun a flame, in the Cosmic lantern bound We are mere ghosts, revolving, the flame surround. -- Omar Khayyam
An interpretation by Shahriar Shahriari:
In our imagination, the Cosmic Wheel Will cause us pain and cause us heal We find our source give life and steal We are phantoms that think and feel. -- Shahriar Shahriari
… both are beautiful, and inspired.
