Listening to Giorgos Seferis "Denial"

Let me live in my little shell, crying for the shiny pearls we left in the white sands.
Let me remember the light of stars shining behind dark clouds we have tried to reach on the wings of seagulls.
Let me dream the songs we had been singing on the shores of raging sea.

With clear heart...
With unchained spirit...
With open mind...
With the wild passion for life...

Let me keep this last pearl of innocence as a sign of time before, when we didn't want to see the storm on the horizon.
But it came, and the waves washed our footsteps, and the sea swallowed our pearls scattered in the sand.
The birds have left, blown with the wind, and our voices faded away.

Let me stay in my little shell, hidden from the world we gave up to change...

*********************************

DENIAL by Giorgos Seferis

On the secret seashore
white like a pigeon
we thirsted at noon;
but the water was brackish.

On the golden sand
we wrote her name;
but the sea-breeze blew
and the writing vanished.

With what spirit, what heart,
what desire and passion
we lived our life; a mistake!
So we changed our life.
