The composition

Beautiful young boy grown up in Pilio
becomes resourceful if he’s forced
because the officer is moving monochrome
meanwhile the Trojan horse colorful wins.
The brave warrior, eagle of Troy,
became worthy thinker, owl of experience.
The hubris of Achilles was holding shield,
gaze of Ulysses is raising hope.


One new Prometheus who was looking for peace,
rose in Portaria to ask fountain
how and when could he find source of Hellenism
and when he heard that her answer
was that earth’s sweat is our sea,
went down to Horeuto in our places.
When he arrived, he bent down and dipped his hand
and trapped a handful of light, blue star.
