HAPPY BLUE WEEKEND TO ALL!

 

Ionian Song

 

Just because we have broken their statues,

just because we have driven them out of their temples,

the gods did not die because of this at all.

O Ionian land, it is you they still love,

it is you their souls still remember.

When an August morning dawns upon you

a vigor from their life moves through your air;

and at times an ethereal youthful figure,

indistinct, in rapid stride,

crosses over your hills.

 

Constantine P. Cavafy (1911)
