Zakynthos II

Zakynthos II

 

to a young teacher of ancient Greek

 

Elena I call you

because a man would conquer

a world to lay it down

at your feet

 

oh there is so much light

in your face, on your skin

you remind of a woman from the very begin

 

Elena, make your pupils

laugh and they will adore you

do not scream: screaming is weakness

 

you do have humour in you

use it to conquer their hearts

I know you can do

 

you conquer a world with your smile,

your elegance and classical beauty,

a beauty hard to find

 

I call you Elena

because like Paris I would steal you from home

but I do not want a Trojan war

 

so I advise you, like an old fool:

smile at your pupils and that will do

the world falls in love with a woman like you
