I Love You by Myrtiotissa

I love you, I cannot
anything else say,
as deep, as simple,
as great!

Here in front of your feet
with longing I lie
the many-leafed flower
of my life.

My two hands, behold
offered to you in a knot
to sweetly lean
your head on.

And my heart yearns
and full of jealousy calls
to be for you as they are
a cushion.

Oh my hive, from him
you should drink
the pure scents
of my soul!

I love you, what else can
my precious tell you,
as deep, as simple
as great?

I translated this from Greek. One of the most popular love poems of all time.
