Treasure Island

Ahmad Shiddiqi

(March 7,1974 / Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia)

Myth 5


Hecuba had been bathing at Methana
Plane trees had been touching Aeschylus
Had Asklepios been guiding Hector in Pella?
At midday Petralona Cave had been protecting Artemis

Alkaios was writing love poems in the middle of Achaia Clauss
Theatre of Epidaurus was turning purple suddenly
Nessus was swimming on River Loussios
Was Neda sleeping beside Kallirhoi Fountain?

Apollo had been saving a brown-gown princess on Mezapos Bay
Had the gray mist been hugging Ermoupoli in Autumn?
Before dawn Paris had been traveling to Omala Valley
Loutra Iraias Forest had been whispering to Hera

(dedicated to a poet friend at poemhunter, Lynn Glover)

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
