Title: A Riddle in Two Rubaiyat
Rating: G
Theme: Riddles
Elements: The prompt for this riddle was the word "garden", yet it isn't the answer.
Author's Notes: _
Summary: _
Word Count: 63


While wand'ring in the garden of the world
Too oft one contemplates the thought absurd:
That all our hopes and plans may stand a chance
Upon this ragged path we see unfurled.

Yet our scheming will not change its stance,
As towards us it slowly does advance;
And now, tell me the one-syllable word
That names it, the true lord of circumstance?

[Answer:](Fate)

Now THIS one I can guess, since the prompt is not the answer to your riddle (good use of your word, BTW!).

My guess: Fate?

Nicely done! I guessed 'death', but your answer is a much better match.

I'd guess fate as well.
