Darlings of the forest! Blossoming alone When Earth's grief is sorest For her jewels gone Ere the last snow-drift melts your tender buds have blown.
Know yourself as a snowdrift on the sand Heaped for two days, or three, then thawed and gone.c.1100 Ruba iya t, stanza16 (translated by Robert Graves and Omar Ali-Shah,1972).
