Poetry Friday: Palladas

Loving the rituals’

Loving the rituals that keep men close,
Nature created means for friends apart:

pen, paper, ink, the alphabet,
Signs for the distant and disconsolate heart.

— translated from the Greek by Tony Harrison

  • Palladas was a 4th century AD poet. Greek, he lived in Alexandria.
