Alan Seeger (Алан Сигер)


Kyrenaikos


LAY me where soft Cyrene rambles down
In grove and garden to the sapphire sea;
Twine yellow roses for the drinker's crown;
Let music reach and fair heads circle me,
Watching blue ocean where the white sails steer
Fruit-laden forth or with the wares and news
Of merchant cities seek our harbors here,
Careless how Corinth fares, how Syracuse;
But here, with love and sleep in her caress,
Warm night shall sink and utterly persuade
The gentle doctrine Aristippus bare, --
Night-winds, and one whose white youth's loveliness,
In a flowered balcony beside me laid,
Dreams, with the starlight on her fragrant hair.



Alan Seeger's other poems:

  2. Sonnet 7. To me, a pilgrim on that journey bound
  3. Sonnet 12. Down the strait vistas where a city street
  4. Sonnet 2. Not that I always struck the proper mean
  5. On a Theme in the Greek Anthology
