ελιά- elia (Olive)


I lived the beloved name

In the shade of the aged olive tree

In the roaring of the lifelong sea….. (Odysseus Elytis, 1911-1996,  Nobel prize for Literature 1979)

The olive trees with the wrinkles of our fathers

The rocks with the wisdom of our fathers

and our brother’s blood alive on the earth

were a vital joy, a rich pattern

for the souls who knew their prayer

George Seferis from “Astyanax” (Myhistorema)
