severely damaged Linear A fragment from Gournia


severely damaged Linear A fragment from Gournia:

At any rate, the interpretations I have attempted hang together.

Hermippus

traduction en français par Richard Vallance

I converted this beautiful poem by Hermippus, an ancient Greek poet, into a haiku. It is not my original work at all, but I just love this poem! I think you will agree.

J’ai transformé ce beau poème par Hermippus, poète grec de l’antiquité, en un haiku. Ce n’est guère une oeuvre originale de ma part, mais je l’aime passionnément ! Je crois que vous serez d’accord.
