Neo-Hellene Poets, an Anthology of Modern Greek Poetry 1750-2018

POEM BY KOSTIS PALAMAS

IMAGINATION

Come, oh maiden, imagination

and you too ringleader thought

bring all the tireless workers

fairies of the rhythm

and bring the depth of lust

the heights of vision

and bring the flowers

made of gold and marble

the gleaming words

to build a palace and erect

the idol of the Sun inside it

and make it exquisitely great

adorable like a sun ray
