Love Detected

Modern Greek

MAIDEN, we kissed, but ’twas at night; and who thinkst thou beheld us?

The night beheld, the moon beheld, the moon and star of evening:

The star dropped earthward from the sky, and told the sea the story;

The sea at once the rudder told; the rudder told the sailor;

The sailor sang it at the door, where sat his sweetheart listening.
