The jewel of Greece©

The Bible called you Caphtor

You were Mari’s Kaptara

and Egypt‘s Keftiu

You lost your Mycenaean name

until Homer’s pronounced you

The Grand island

where the sun shines

and the waters flow

in gorges, rivers and lakes

 

People now flood through

Heraklion, Chania and Sitia

 

You are the symbol of

romance and the renaissance

and Europe‘s centre of

civilisation and legends

 

The jewel of Greece

you calls yourself Crete
