Photographer's Note

Ode to Joy

Joy, beautiful spark of God,
Daughter of Elysium,
We enter, fire-drunk,
Heavenly one, your shrine.
Your magic reunites
What custom strictly parts.
All people become brothers
Where your gentle wing alights.

Whoever has succeeded in the great attempt
To be a friend to a friend;
Whoever has won a lovely woman
Mix in your joy!
Yes, who calls even one soul
His own on the earth's sphere!
And let whoever has never achieved this
Steal away crying from this group!

All beings drink joy
At the breasts of nature;
All the good, all the bad
Follow her trail of roses.
She gave us kisses and vines,
A friend, proven in death;
Great pleasure was given to the worm,
And the cherub stands before God.

Glad, like his suns fly
Through heaven's splendid plan,
Run, brothers, your race,
Joyful, like a hero to the victory.

Be embraced, millions!
This kiss to all the world!
Brothers, over the starry firmament
Must live a loving father.
Do you bow down, millions?
Do you sense the Creator, world?
Seek him beyond the starry firmament!
He must dwell beyond the stars....

Λάμρο, οπου και αν στεκεσαι, να σε καλα...
