Carpe Diem #1314 The Nightingale

the quatrain prompt from Kristjaan is:

Alas, that Spring should vanish with the Rose!
That Youth's sweet-scented Manuscript should close!
The Nightingale that in the Branches sang,
Ah, whence, and whither flown again, who knows?
© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

Kristjaan has prompted us with a quatrain from one of Khayyam's Rubyait

With Earth's first Clay They did the Last Man's knead,
