Ruba'i: The Poet, the Page and the Word in whichever order

Ruba’i*: The Poet, the Page and the Word in whichever Order?

The poet en face the page: unwritten words come to head
Words await tongues to be formed for poems to be read
Heavenly bodies stretch out seeking caravanserai 
En route to gauge the extent of the ruba’i’s ruby red!

•	ruba’i  (plural: ruba’iyat): 11th-12th century Persian self-contained 
quatrain of 14 syllables rhyming aaba made popular in the West through 
Edward Fitzgerald’s 1859 translations titled: The Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam
