Poem by Kostis Palamas

BORN TO THE SUN

The joy was great at the Olympus

the Gods parceled the earth

while the light giver was absent

to be forgotten without an heir

but the light giver came and

signaled to the sea that stirred fertility

and the island of the Sun was born

and it was the most beautiful

where craftsmen lived

who were like supermen

and they created many statues

as beautiful as Gods

and full of life like people
