Loved almost all the poems.........

This collection begins with this poem:


In younger days I greeted the dawn with joy
And wept at dusk; while now, in my older age,
I start my day perplexed with doubt, but
Sacred and gay is to me its ending.

From the poem HOME:

Beloved shores, that reared me in days gone by,
Will you appease the sorrows by love begot?
And you, will once again you promise
Peace, if I come, O my childhood's forests?

For with the gift of heavenly fire, the gods
Bestow on mankin
