ΤΡΑΓΟΥΔΙ ΑΓΑΠΗΣ (Greek Love Song)
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Oh no! A still-life image never be
The story of our lives! Why, our hearts long
For more, not just reflections of the Tree,
But the birds of summer, the Living Song!
Nothing to deny, nor deeds to confess
Have I, but that my heart does leap for you,
Nor would I settle for anyone less:
Right from the start I felt this déjà vu!
Yes! Surely I had met you once before,
I thought, yet searching every single bank
Of my memory, not one could restore
Any recollection. Maybe I drank
From the River of Forgetfulness, yet,
Could I then have this feeling? Love is love
Most truly so, which we cannot forget,
Perhaps, even if the Fates disapprove!
Woe to us, if even enchantment bends
Under the authority of reason,
Merely human power! May love transcend
Our minds, or else with love what may be done?
Sensing in you this spirit sound, I give
My heart to you. Is there some truer wealth?
Within your heart, I think, this goddess lives
In harmonic motion with my core self!
Alas! I'm no match for Zeus, whose glory's
Much brighter than the summer solstice sky,
But do note this: you may see MY story
Through to the end, still living, AND not die!
So, take me as this lesser god, perhaps
Even a satyr god singing? To dance
To the tune of Pan, and then in your lap
To rest, a godchild of fair Circumstance!
Let mere poets sing about butterflies,
Their symmetry, their fluttering, the waves
Among the blossoms, that which never dies.
I sing now of my throbbing heart which braves
The pains to which mortal flesh is subject,
To bring you the love which goes on and on,
Honoring your ethereal aspect,
The first rays of the long-awaited dawn!
