George Seferis – Collected Poems


And yet there, on the other shore

under the black glance of the cave

suns in your eyes birds on your shoulders

you were there; you suffered

for the other struggle, love

the other dawn, reappearance

the other birth, resurrection;

and yet you were reborn

in the vast dilation of time

moment by moment like the resin

the stalactite, the stalagmite.
