POEM BY KOSTIS PALAMAS

GODS

And the first man saw

the sun’s ascent for the first time

and he heard the music

responding to it sweetly

thousands of words

thousand compliments

offered to the spring of day

and everything, what a miracle,

the hymns and everything

spread to the four corners of the earth

and the eons gave them flesh

and turned them into

gods of light

monsters of harmony
