Flowers Of The Rock

Poem By Giorgos Seferis

Flowers of the rock facing the green sea
with veins that reminded me of other loves
glowing in the slow fine rain,
flowers of the rock, figures
that came when no one spoke and spoke to me
that let me touch them after the silence
among pine-trees, oleanders, and plane-trees.

Denial

On the secret seashore
white like a pigeon
we thirsted at noon;
but the water was brackish.

The Leaf Of The Poplar

It trembled so, the wind set it sailing
it trembled so, how could it not yield to the wind
far beyond
the sea

Interval Of Joy

We were happy all that morning
Ο God how happy.
First the stones the leaves and the flowers shone
and then the sun

In The Sea Caves

In the sea caves
there's a thirst there's a love
there's an ecstasy
all hard like shells

Santorini - The Naked Child

Bend if you can to the dark sea forgetting
the flute's sound on naked feet
that trod your sleep in the other, the sunken life.
