Constantine P Cavafy

Here you will find the Poem Long Ago of poet Constantine P Cavafy

Long Ago

I?d like to speak of this memory?
but it?s so faded now?as though nothing is left?
because it was so long ago, in my early adolescent years.

A skin as though of jasmines?
that August evening? was it August??
I can still just recall the eyes: blue, I think they were?
Ah yes, blue: a sapphire blue.
