This is my first ever official Quatrain poem. Hope you enjoy the read!
"Rubai - rubaiyat in the plural - is the Persian word for quatrain, or four-line verse. In English translation, the standard form for rubaiyat is that the first, second, and last lines rhyme. The third line usually does not *thyme with the other three. The rubai is an ancient literary form the Persian poets have used to express their thoughts on diverse subjects. Because a rubai is so short and its rhyme scheme so restrictive, it often makes use of metaphor or imagery to express its meaning."
