Θάλασσα Του Πρωιού - Morning Sea

Let me stop here. Let me, too, 
look at nature awhile.
The brilliant blue of the morning sea,
of the cloudless sky,  
the yellow shore; all lovely, all bathed in light.

Let me stand here.
And let me pretend I see all this  
(I really did see it for a minute
when I first stopped)  
and not my usual day-dreams
here too, my memories, 
those images of sensual pleasure.
