Wheat Ears – Selected Poems

Poem by GEORGE VIZYENOS

PARABLE

The morning star can never shine

as you when you appear, joy-giving lass

nor does the green clover have as much

as you have freshness on your sweetened lips

nor do the flowers of narcissus have

such fragrance as your lightest breath

nor does the bird know how to sing such

sweet songs as your inventive lips.

One only it can’t learn—to sing I love you

and for this, I dare to say, another soul may die.
