Orphic Symphony ~ Dedicated to E.

“Anger of Poseidon” by Mariusz Lewandowski
The Mermaid” by Howard Pyle
“Orpheus Leading Eurydice from the Underworld” by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot
“Orpheus and Eurydice” by Emil Neide
“Orphee et Eurydice” by Eduard Kasparides
Crossing the ocean
In the arms of Poseidon
My heart will reach you.

Bleeding with sea-foam,
Wrapped in a mermaid's soft hair,
Our spirits emerge

From the stormy waves
Where Aphrodite was born,
Pink-glowing, pearl-hung.

My tenderness plays
The Apollonian lyre
With your slender hands.

There is no escape
From the darkness of Hades
To the Olympus.

Approaching the light,
I succumb, mesmerized by
The sound of your voice.

"Beloved," you beg:
"Turn around!" Eurydice - 
Forever, farewell!

      1. Appreciated. Although I wasn’t able to translate a few of your work in Russian language into English but still I could feel the essence of art flourishing like a sole wave roaring over the sea. 🙌
