Visit Greece | April 2011

Of the Aegean
Sea surf kiss on its caressed sand—Eros
The gull gives the horizon
Its blue liberty
Waves go home
Foaming answering in the ears of shells

Who took the blond sunburnt girl?
The sea breeze with its transparent blowing
Tilts the sail of dream
Far out
Eros murmurs its promise—Sea surf.

Odysseas Elytis (extract from the collection of poems “Orientations”)
Translators: Jeffrey Carson & Nikos Sarris
