i brought to art - c.p. cavafy

I Brought To Art
by C.P. Cavafy (tr. Rae Dalven)

I sit and meditate.     I brought to art
desires and feelings--     some things half seen,
faces or lines;     some indistinct memories
of unfulfilled loves.     Let me rely on her.
She knows how to fashion     a Figure of Beauty;
almost imperceptibly     rounding out life,
combining impressions,     combining the days.
