??????? (Quatrains)

And a retreating Whisper, as I wake – / „The Flower that once has blown for ever dies.“

And once again there gather’d a scarce heard / Whisper among them; as it were, the stirr’d / Ashes of some all but extinguisht Tongue, / Which mine ear kindled into Living Word.

Ex: The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám of Naishápúr
2nd edition 1868, stanza XXVIII, verses 3-4, and XC, verses 1-4

Originally a spammer used these verses for a comment on one of my earlier entries; I decided to not give him the credit yet reproduce these awe-inspiring, splendid poetic lines. I am fairly impressed, though, with the meticulous design of the spam algorithm which mirrored the poetry it identified by just the same literary genre, strikingly so, citing from a work corresponding to the tone of its point of attack.
