Fire of Spring

spring water runs free
cup of plenty overflows
sparkling with new fire

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Carpe Diem #1298 Fire of Spring

This month we are exploring The Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam and today Chèvrefeuille has skipped to quatrain 7. He calls this episode ‘Fire of Spring’, a quotation from this quatrain:

Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly – and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.

© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)
