C. P. KAVAFY: (from) Ithaka

(Translated from the Greek of C. P. Kavafy)

Keep always Ithaca in mind.
It is your destiny to arrive there.
But do not hurry on the way.
Much better that the voyage last many years,
that you drop anchor there an old man,
rich with all you’ve picked up on your journey
and not expecting Ithaca to make you rich.
