The Harbour

Author: Dimitris Tsaloumas



I arrived late one summer evening from a far parapet of hills I'd seen the harbour and the ship and window-panes ablaze with the setting sun. I was glad, for it had been a long, lonely tramp. I approached the town when dusk was thickening to night but saw no lights come on, heard no dogs bark in the lanes. maybe there were no windows or they'd been shut, made fast against the flooding dark. from The Harbour "The authority of Tsaloumas resides in his language and especially in his flawless rhythms." Matt Simpson Critical Survey (UK) "A poet whose voice we very much need now at the river-edge of our millennium." Paul Kane, World Literature Today (USA) "Weight and dignity of utterance that transforms the private and personal into a public declaration." John Barnes
