On a High House in Constantinople

Texts

Τρισσόθεν εἰσορόω πολυτερπέα νῶτα θαλάσσης,
πάντοθεν ἠματίῳ φέγγεϊ βαλλόμενος:
εἰς ἐμὲ γὰρ κροκόπεπλος ὅταν περικίδναται Ἠώς,
τερπομένη, στείχειν πρὸς δύσιν οὐκ ἐθέλει.

— Paton edition

From three sides I view the pleasant expanse of
the sea, struck by the sunlight from all quarters.
For when saffron-mantled Dawn envelops me, she is
so pleased that she has no wish to go on to her
setting.
