Ecumenical Olympia


Joseph S. Josephides

Ave archon enthroned above, Olympia,
Compete fairly, based on love, Eceheria,
Reform my soul crystal adamant,
Athlete brave, classic dynamism;
Ecumenical my phone.

Citius, altius, fortius, Olympia.

Ave galactic synergy, Olympia,
Give me your energy, Eucharist,
Charismatic democracy,
Triumph over chaos’ tyranny;
Pantheon’s apocalypse.

Catholic harmony, Alpha and Omega.

One thought on “Ecumenical Olympia”

  1. Excellent verses that appeared in the Diasporic Literature Spot and thus on our screens, just at the right time, from a very distinguished person. I liked this poem very much.
    (Well, it also made me think that everyone in the world knows how to speak Greek…
    they just don’t know it!)
