    Terrific poem. I have to thank 'poemhunter' for introducing me to this poet. This poem is mighty impressive even in translation, what must have it sounded like in ancient Greece! But, 'Oh, waft with sighs the sail from shore, Oh, smite the bosom, cadencing the oar...' It's difficult to see how even the original Greek could better that. (Report) Reply
