Anna Dalassené

Anna Dalassené

In the golden bull that Alexios Comnenos issued
To prominently honor his mother,
The very sagacious Lady Anna Dalassené-
Distinguished in her works, in her ways-
There are many words of praise:
Here let us convey of them
A beautiful, noble phrase
“Those cold words ‘mine’ or ‘yours’ were never spoken.”


Poem Anna Dalassené - Constantine P Cavafy
