Clelia Charissis, Hellenic Centre, poetry

“Homerics are the Epics of our life, I don’t object,

but tell me… if finally Ithaka is part of the myth,

or if truth deals with its myth,

for the Trojan Wars between

Youth and experience!

Dedicated to men and women…

who ”emigrate” from Youth to Experience

distributing a piece of hope to all

those that are seeking ”their own” Ithaka…

( Clelia Charissis)

As part of the International Poetry Day, Greek-Italian journalist and poet, Clelia Charissis, is presenting her poetry collection, Change of Guard, translated in English by globally recognised Greek poet, Katerina Anghelaki Rooke.
