Morning in the Bowl of Night . . .

I

Awake! For Morning in the

Bowl of Night

Has flung the Stone that puts

the Stars to Flight:

And lo! the Hunter of

the East has caught

The Sultán’s Turret in a

Noose of Light.

~ Omar Khayyám, 11th c. – early 12th c. CE (from the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, trans. Edward Fitzgerald)
