"For the Sun to Turn"; Four Worthy Lines from To Axion Esti, Odysseus Elytis; η άνοιξη ακριβή - για να γυρίσει ο ήλιος θέλει δουλειά πολλή

"Greek the language they gave me;
poor the house on Homer's shores"

"A solitary swallow and a costly spring,
For the sun to turn it takes a job of work"

Translated by Edmund Keeley and George Savidis
