..Και περπατάω στης Πριγκήπου τις κορυφές, στη Χάλκη, την Αντιγόνη και την Πρώτη/ψάχνοντας εδώ και εκεί προσεχτικά μήπως και βρω τη χαμένη μου τη νιότη./Σ’ αυτή τη μακρινή άκρη της γης, μέσα στης νύχτας την άγρια τη δίνη/οι θλιβερές οι μνήμες της ψυχής, Κωνσταντινούπολη, σ’ εσένα βρίσκουν τη γαλήνη.
