Giorgos Seferis

(13 March 1900 - 20 September 1971 / Izmir)

Just a little more


Just a little more
And we shall see the almond trees in blossom
The marbles shining in the sun
The sea, the curling waves.
Just a little more
Let us rise just a little higher.

    I found this poem translated into 4 languages, in the notes for the CD: Officium Novum, The Hilliard Ensemble with Jan Garbarek. The English translation, which I prefer simply because I read it first, is by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard, Princeton University Press 1967:

    A little farther
    we will see the almond trees blossoming
    the marble gleaming in the sun
    the sea breaking into waves

    a little farther,
    let us rise a little higher. (Report) Reply
