George Seferis – Collected Poems



Fateful rose, you looked for ways to wound us

but you bend like the secret to be redeemed

and the command you chose to give us was beautiful

and your smile was like a ready sword.

The accent of your circle brought the world to life

the path of a deep thought emerged from your thorn

our ardor dawned sweet and naked to possess you

the world was as easy as a simple heartbeat.
