Background

A description of the experience

Burton, Sir Richard - THE KASÎDAH 09 1

How then shall man so order life
that when his tale of years is told,
Like sated guest he wend his way;
how shall his even tenour hold?

Despite the Writ that stores the skull;
despite the Table and the Pen;[1]
Maugre the Fate that plays us down,
her board the world, her pieces men?

 [1. Emblems of Kismet, or Destiny.]

The source of the experience
