"ONE MOMENT OF THE WELL OF LIFE TO TASTE"

One Moment in Annihilation's Waste,
One Moment, of the Well of Life to taste--
The Stars are setting, and the Caravan
Draws to the Dawn of Nothing--Oh make haste!
——《鲁拜集》48

从毁灭的过程中抽出一刹那,
把人生的滋味来品尝一下——
星落了,商旅的队伍①已向
混沌的黎明出发——啊,赶快罢!
(梁实秋译)
①人生如商旅夜行(避白昼之炎热),为时甚暂,不久即没入混沌的荒漠。
