I soldiered to the top of the Acropolis
With you, my love, strapped to my chest

Before you saw year one
You saw the Parthenon
And left a shark as a gift to the Gods

Your sleep evasion
Led to our nightly excursions
Through the cobbled mazes of Athens

You were startled by the barks of stray dogs
Echoing off the ancient agora walls

Thank the Gods of Olympus
That taverna's lights were still lit
And the inn-keeper knew
Which direction was best

Before you saw year one
You saw the Parthenon
And left a shark as a gift to the Gods
