The Jasmin Poem by Giorgos Seferis

The Jasmin

Rating: 3.6

Whether it's dusk
or dawn's first light
the jasmin stays
always white.

It is amazing to me how a few words in the hands of a skilled author can paint such beautiful pictures and send our imagination into the stratosphere

Nice poem. I like the little white flowers of jasmine and the sweet fragrance.

Sweet little poem - good to remember on a picnic or special occasion requiring flowers - And Anton my guess is that he wrote this in English since his couplets end with a tail rhyme. I suppose it could have been just a happy accident though...
