Amidst the azure embrace of the Aegean sea,
Where the heavens meet the waves with glee,
Lies the Cyclades, a sailor's dream,
A wondrous realm where sunbeams gleam.

On a vessel adorned with canvas wings,
We set forth to explore these island rings,
As gentle zephyrs guide our course,
We dance with dolphins, wild and free, of course.

With every dip and sway, we sail,
Through cerulean depths, an ancient tale,
The whispers of the past, they call,
In the Cyclades, history enthralls.

From Mykonos to Antiparos's embrace,
We journey through time, each ancient trace,
White-washed walls that touch the sky,
Like dreams of clouds, they soar up high.

In the heart of this Aegean blue,
A symphony of colors comes to view,
Bougainvillea's bloom in vibrant hue,
An artist's palette, an oceanic brew.

The horizon, a canvas of golden fire,
As the setting sun ignites desire,
To witness twilight's gentle kiss,
As stars emerge from celestial abyss.

Anchored 'neath the moonlit gleam,
In a tranquil bay, we find a dream,
Celestial lanterns light our way,
Guiding hearts to realms astray.

The scent of salt, the taste of brine,
The essence of life in this paradisal shrine,
In the Cyclades, time slows its pace,
And harmony finds its dwelling place.

In this nautical odyssey of pure delight,
Where ancient myths blend with modern light,
We'll cherish the moments, forever aglow,
Sailing the Cyclades, where dreams bestow.

Upon her shores, the salted breeze,
Whispers secrets of the ancient seas.
Untouched by time, untouched by man,
A sanctuary of nature's grand plan.

In quietude, the wild goats roam,
Their agile dance a tale of home.
They leap and climb on rugged terrain,
Where land and sky entwine, untamed.

Beneath the waves, a world unseen,
A realm of creatures yet to glean.
Majestic rays and dolphins' glide,
In harmony, they do reside.

Polyaigos, in stillness and might,
A symphony of day and night.
From dawn to dusk, her beauty sings,
As stars above spread their twinkling wings.

A haven for the seeker's heart,
To find solace, to restart.
In nature's arms, one feels embraced,
A soul unburdened, freedom chased.

Oh, Polyaigos, your allure so grand,
A secret jewel, in nature's hand.
May you forever wild remain,
In the poet's heart, your memory sustain.
