The comparatively unknown rendering of the verse from the Rub�iy�t of Omar Kh�yy�m, quoted on the succeeding page, is to be found in the first edition of Fitzgerald's translation of the Persian poem.
"For in the Market-place, one Dusk of Day,
I watch'd the Potter thumping his wet clay:
And with its all-obliterated Tongue
It murmur'd�'Gently, Brother, gently, pray!'"
From the Rub�iy�t.
