Going out this Thursday to see the most big and the most amazing moon of the year (expect from the one in May) it was surely a beautiful night!
At last after some hard work i finally finish with my room. Putting everything down, i found some hidden memories of my childhood! But now everything is on their place and so happy with the result!
I had try to make so many sketches of my beloved writer in the past but most of them, well, didnt look like him. But today i was in the mood so i tried once again. Here is the result. Is not a copy of the usual photos of him but it is something! A mini portrait of Edgar Allan Poe.
Hymn (translation from the Greek) by Edgar Allan Poe
Hymn to Aristogeiton and Harmodius
Wreathed in myrtle, my sword I'll conceal,
Like those champions devoted and brave,
When they plunged in the tyrant their steel,
And to Athens deliverance gave.
Beloved heroes! your deathless souls roam
In the joy breathing isles of the blest;
Where the mighty of old have their home—
Where Achilles and Diomed rest.
In fresh myrtle my blade I'll entwine,
Like Harmodius, the gallant and good,
When he made at the tutelar shrine
A libation of Tyranny's blood.
Ye deliverers of Athens from shame!
Ye avengers of Liberty's wrongs!
Endless ages shall cherish your fame,
Embalmed in their echoing songs!
