ceramic sculpture: farhad

 

The mist of night around her summit coils, 


But still Ferhad, the lover-artist, toils, 


And still---the flashes of his axe between--- 


He sighs to ev'ry wind, "Alas! Shireen! 


Alas! Shireen!---my task is well-nigh done, 


The goal in view for which I strive alone. 


Love grants me powers that Nature might deny; 


And, whatsoe'er my doom, the world shall tell, 


Thy lover gave to immortality 


Her name he loved---so fatally---so well!
