Serenity: The Sun Retreats Beyond The Horizon
Here end the works of the sea, the works of love.
Those who will some day live here where we end —
should the blood happen to darken in their memory and overflow —
let them not forget us, the weak souls among the asphodels,
let them turn the heads of the victims towards Erebus:
We who had nothing will school them in serenity.
From Mythistorema by George Seferis (1900-1971)
- original name Giorgios Stylianou Seferiades
