English version by Ivan M. Granger
Original Language Greek



The fire rises in me,
     and lights up my heart.
Like the sun!
Like the golden disk!
Opening, expanding, radiant --
     Yes!
     -- a flame!

I say again:
     I don't know
     what to say!

I'd fall silent
-- If only I could --
but this marvel
     makes my heart leap,
it leaves me open mouthed
     like a fool,

urging me
     to summon words
     from my silence.



-- from Real Thirst: Poetry of the Spiritual Journey, by Ivan M. Granger

<Poetry Chaikhana | Symeon the New Theologian - The fire rises in me
