Silent Awaiting – a poem about the Parthenon Marbles, by Vasiliki Savvidou-Mihalarea

SILENT AWAITING

Marble pieces lie about

burdened with century- old dust

and great deeds of the past,

polished with sweat and labour

AWAIT the return of

their counterparts, lost and gone

to faraway lands.

Handicapped the Parthenon stands

with a bright amputated sun

casting its light, always bright

on this axed colossal cradle.

The great Greek spirit immortal,

hovers restlessly above, seeking

the pieces of this great monument.

The parade of life-depicting figures,

so elaborately carved on marble,

are now sad, a vehicle of the past

they have now become.

The pilgrims to the gentle spirit

stand in awe before the Parthenon

and a sudden sadness fills their heart

when they see the Temple

handicapped and so brutally attacked.
