Melina: The Rose in my Heart

Melina: The Rose in my Heart A poem of love to my blue-eyed wonderful grand-daughter inspired by Ancient Greek Wisdom You are the only one, my beautiful The power of my tiny humble soul The red rose in my heart’s garden The tree of life in my mind’s Eden For I love thee, ever more and always As I traverse the turbulent pathways Across my brain’s rugged landscapes On the way to my Elysian everglades I pray, my dearest, to our God Almighty To keep you psyche well, safe and tidy So that His will be done harmoniously Alleviating all my troubles permanently Always taking into deep consideration the following wise sayings: 1. By Empedocles: ‘Harmony defines the unity of Nature’. 2. By Democritus: ‘Harmony defines human happiness’. 3. By Plato: ‘Truth, virtue and goodness are the three most critical values of humanity’. 4. By Sappho: ‘The beautiful person is only so in appearance while the good person is also kind while being at the same time beautiful in appearance’.
