A new collection of poems by Pantelis Melissinos

Sibylla is a collection of poems (based on Delphic aphorisms ) that could have been the (off the record) thoughts of a Delphic Sibyl; a Sibyl on her day off and in the company of fellow villagers -on Mount Parnassus – away from her official tripod seat amongst the Delphic Sages.

" Wisdom's the tears of daily human pain
That day by day fall likes drops of rain,
Filling up like little by little our celebral pots,
Till we, one day, get knowledge of all sorts"

Illustrated poetry by Pantelis Melissinos. Athens 2009
