Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

On Sky Drive II


For seven days he wandered as a ghost,
where souls of other dimensions had lived;
the times forgot his falsities that heaved,
in dark nimbus and a mist covered coast.

He walked on sand for many miles and then
strongholds appeared hazy in dusk distance,
it was a cry of wolf to sown instance,
and two scholastic birds to croak again.

The roses died.. The colors dyed in rain;
None interrupted the silent grayness,
thus strong the dusk stooped in his emptiness,
outcast lives of begotten seeds in vain.

Calm, Master Death came to engulf him thrice,
forsooth freed cold as for twenty five
odd days the brave went to sleep on sky drive,
lost spirit left his winter pray on ice.

Wounded the chords of time harped in union,
a stalwart's solitude's upon the waves;
he visioned a pasture in his mind caves,
in the narrow cell, he drunk communion.

poet George Gordon Byron

I Speak Not, I Trace...
by George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
