Very Seldom Analysis

Author: poem of C.P. Cavafy Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

He's an old man. Used up and bent,

crippled by time and indulgence,

he slowly walks along the narrow street.

But when he goes inside his house to hide

the shambles of his old age, his mind turns

to the share in youth that still belongs to him.

His verse is now recited by young men.

His visions come before their lively eyes.

Their healthy sensual minds,

their shapely taut bodies

stir to his perception of the beautiful.

Trans. by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard

.: :.

This poem is surely autobiographical - Cavafy lived and wrote in Alexandria, probably roamed the teeming streets, sat at pavement cafes watching the young men going to and fro.
Growing old amidst this cornucopia of plenty - youth in abundance - would have brought home to him how he was wilting with age.
