Here you will find the Poem On an Italian Shore of poet Constantine P Cavafy
Kimos, son of Menedoros, a young Greek-Italian, devotes his life to amusing himself, like most young men in Greater Greece brought up in the lap of luxury. But today, in spite of his nature, he is preoccupied, dejected. Near the shore he watched, deeply distressed, as they unload ships with booty taken from the Peloponnese. G r e e k l o o t: b o o t y f r o m C o r i n t h. Today certainly it is not right, it is not possible for the young Greek-Italian to want to amuse himself in any way.
