Window on Cyprus

Gold-green leaf Land of the lemon and the olive tree land of warm embraces, land of joy land of the pine and the cypress tree land of fine young men, land of love a gold-green leaf cast upon the open sea Land of the parched prairie land of the bitter Virgin land of the warm wind and unfair loss land of wild weather and volcanoes a gold-green leaf cast upon the open sea Land of the laughing girls land of the tipsy boys land of unction and salutations Cyprus, land of love and dreams a gold-green leaf cast upon the open sea Leonidas Malenis (Translated by John Vickers)
