Here end the works of the sea, the works of love.
Those who will some day live here where we end -
should the blood happen to darken in their memory and
overflow -
let them not forget us, the weak souls among the asphodels,
let them turn the heads of the victims toward the Erebus:

We who know nothing will teach them peace.

Yorgos Seferis
