Dawn’s Left Hand

dawn’s fingers of light
reminding late night lovers
a new day’s arrived

My response to Carpe Diem #1296 Dawn’s Left Hand

This November, we are exploring The Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam and today’s episode is called ‘dawn’s left hand’, from the 2nd quatrain of The Rubaiyat:

Dreaming when Dawn’s Left Hand was in the Sky
I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry,
“Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup
Before Life’s Liquor in its Cup be dry.”

Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
