Maid of Athens, Ere We Part


Maid of Athens, ere we part,

Give, oh, give back my heart!

Or, since that has left my breast,

Keep it now, and take the rest!

Hear my vow before I go,

Zoë mou sas agapo. 



By those tresses unconfined, 

Wooed by each Aegean wind;

By those lids whose jetty fringe

Kiss thy soft cheeks’ blooming tinge;

By those wild eyes like the roe, 

Zoë mou sas agapo. 



By that lip I long to taste;

By that zone-encircled waist;

By all the token-flowers that tell

What words can never speak so well; 

By love’s alternate joy and woe, 

Zoë mou sas agapo. 



Maid of Athens! I am gone: 

Think of me, sweet! when alone. 

Though I fly to Istambol, 

Athens holds my heart and soul:

Can I cease to love thee?
No! 
Zoë mou sas agapo.

	George Gordon, Lord Byron
