I’ve Brought to Art

I’ve Brought to Art

I’ve Brought to Art

I sit in a mood of reverie.

I brought to Art desires and sensations:

things half-glimpsed,

faces or lines, certain indistinct memories

of unfulfilled love affairs. Let me submit to Art:

Art knows how to shape forms of Beauty,

almost imperceptibly completing life,

blending impressions, blending day with day.


C.P. Cavafy
