K. P. Kavafis (1863-1933)


The sea took a sailor into its depths. -
His mother, unaware, goes to light

a tall candle before the Virgin Mary,
that he return soon and meet with fine weather-

all the while turning windward her ear.
But as she prays and supplicates,

the icon listens, solemn and sad, well aware
that he'll never come back, the son she awaits.
