Text heard on Sample:
We are no other than a moving row
Of visionary Shapes that come and go
Round with this Sun-illumin'd Lantern held
In Midnight by the Master of the Show;
But helpless Pieces of the Game he Plays
Upon his Chequer-board of Nights and Days

Hither and thither moves and checks and slays;
And one by one back in the Closet lays
Hither and thither moves and checks and slays
And one by one back in the Closet lays...

Text: Omar Khayyám.
Translation by Edward FitzGerald
