My Greek-American cousin wants me to read a short poem at his wedding next week! He would like it read in Greek and then in English. Any suggestions??

How about these lines by Od. Elytis

Before my eyes were you light
Before the Love love
and when the kiss took you

Or this, by Nikos Eggonopoulos

I'm like a house built
corner to corner, inch to inch,
in accurate dimensions;
they built my doors to the height of you,
and all my objects, my furniture and seats,
to the fringe of the body and hands of you,
and finally, to open: your name - my key!
