In December 1904, at the age of 41, the Alexandrian poet Constantine P. Cavafy made a careful choice of fourteen poems written since 1893, and had them privately printed early in 1905, in an edition of 100 copies with the title Poems 1904. A meticulously and severely self-critical writer, it was his practice to write around seventy poems a year and keep only four or five. These he would share with friends or sometimes send out to journals. He also had occasional poems privately printed in one- or two-poem pamphlets for distribution to his friends, whose opinions were the only ones he valued. Among these friends was E.M. Forster, who wrote an admiring account of him in Pharos and Pharillon, and brought him to the attention of a British readership long before he was widely read in Greece.

William Shakespeare Poem
Sonnet 11: As Fast As Thou Shalt Wane, So Fast Thou Grow'st
 by William Shakespeare

As fast as thou shalt wane, so fast thou grow'st
In one of thine, from that which thou departest,
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow'st,
Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest.
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase;
Without this folly, age, and cold decay,
If all were minded so, the times should cease,
And threescore year would make the world away.
