Come Back
by C P Cavafy
Come back often and take hold of me,
sensation that I love, come back and take hold of me –
when the body’s memory revives
and an old longing passes through the blood,
when lips and skin remember
and hands feel as though they touch again.
Come back often and take hold of me in the night
when lips and skin remember…
==========================================

Constantine P Cavafy (1863-1933) was an ethnic Greek poet who lived in Alexandria, Egypt where he worked as a journalist. He would have been a great supporter of WordPress and other similar on line sites as he regularly refused to formally publish his work preferring to share his work through newspapers and magazines.
