Things they couldn't see | Giorgos Seferis, 1900-1971

 Vincent Van Gogh, Olive Trees, 1889

"You spoke about things they couldn't see and so they laughed. Yet to row up the dark river against 
the current, to take the unknown road blindly, stubbornly, and to search for words rooted like the
 knotted olive tree- let them laugh. And to yearn for the other world to inhabit today's suffocating
 loneliness, this ravaged present- let them be."

Giorgos Seferis, 1900-1971
