Piraeus - Poem by Mason Maestro

Port of the empire to Athena be built
Upon the face of Zea
Piraeus leg its strength at each anchor
Cypress and fragrant cedar
While the leaves of the lemon tree will smother
The brazen flames of another

Sunlight bright upon the dawn
Lighter than Athena’s pawn
Will she see the weeping ground
Wind the branches of a mount so sound
Piraeus dream, dreamboat fleet, fleet of all her dreams
Every isle they turn on the lighthouse
Waiting for the goddess of war
Will the Cyclades of Aegea sing
Find me where I'm hiding

Piraeus dream, dreamboat fleet, fleet of all her dreams
Will misty Olympus present the key
Will the peaks keep them enshrined
From a Spartan venture odyssey
Harbor vessels so confined
Piraeus dream, dreamboat fleet, fleet of all her dreams
