The Rubaiyat of Fang De Kang

In the sky I beheld some stars, which shined,
The subtle façade of all that’s divined.
When I think it through, it would make no sense
How all of this could be so intertwined.

As I live this life I continue to learn
The secrets of the life I live, which I yearn.
From Bird’s eye, I contrived something surreal.
The same stars I saw were to forever burn.

Wonderstruck at this incandescent frame,
Enthralled, by the light, with this seeming shame
By wing, by flight, I took through the dark night.
Within sight I beheld the fiery flame

Into warmness I eagerly embraced
My whole life’s insight was dearly defaced,
Replaced by this mind so superior.
When I am dead and cannot be retraced,

I shall find solace regardless of cost.
It is better to have loved and lost,
In this world perceived of vice and vagrants.
Thus I shall remain until then, until frost.
