Simplicity..

Poem By Giorgos Seferis

I want nothing more but to speak simple, to be given this favour. Because we even charged the song with so much music that it is slowly sinking.

Comments about Simplicity..

A song pierces the heart easier if it is not too intricate in its music but simple and memorable in its words
These words sound very profound although are not particularly clear in their meaning, but it is St Patrick's Day, so I may come back tomorrow. 10 from paddied out! lol Tai

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.
