ἀποθανεῖν θέλω

A short pome reflecting my default state of mind


 

ah you laughing flittering wraiths

who grace my memory

with smiles and beckoning

and dance ahead

I see you

 

I long for you

but cannot catch

and dance with you

until that fateful joyful day

all burdens slip away.

slip yes like what I wondered in my poem Dad, the weight of ἀποθανεῖν you may need to use it, it’s not two separate words and the accentuation is this ~, not this ΅

funny but as I was saying to someone yesterday, a greek poetess you might want to read wrote speaking to Need that it has created everything but Love/Eros, it was death’s wild curiosity about Life that created Eros.

the poetess has died recently.
Kiki Dimoula is her name.

Ifyouplease

very proper a genius with thousands of fans here and elsewhere. her books were selling like a hotcake.

Ifyouplease

I see edits and one of them is something I backspaced and never suggested

the but line
