"The Metaphysics in C.P. Cavafy" is based, in its greater part,
on the "Letters from the Masters"

1. They've built enormous, towering walls around me
2. If the earth is veiled in darkness, have no fear.
Whatever is dark do not consider permanent.
3. An excellent suit of armour I shall make
4. Another city will be found better than this one
5. Your obligation is to give in, always give in to the Desires
which are the most perfect creatures of the most perfect gods
6. She only had one deep sorrow
7. And every day, it raises its head higher
8. In another life our heart must have known them
9. And you as a whole have been transformed into pure emotion for me
10. Gods know what is in the future
11. He is the Man
12. Eros with its exquisite power
13. Verses of sensual pleasure, the exquisite,
which is heading towards barren and unfavourable love
14. Voices ideal and beloved
15. Whoever desires to strengthen his spirit
16. I believe the Hereafter
17. As we too phrased the olden words in another way
