I translated it on some website and it changed it to "Go where the love observes".

I am looking for "Go where Love abides"

If this has been read 24 times (so far) but no one has attempted a translation, it could mean that your request is not very clear.

Let me see what I can do.

In modern Greek, this would be: "Πήγαινε εκεί που κατοικεί ο έρωτας". In Greeklish, "Pigaine ekei pou katoikei o erotas". I hope you don't need a phonetic transcription.

I have no idea what it would be in good Attic Greek or in Homer's Ionic. But let me know if this does not answer your query.

I think "Πήγαινε εκεί όπου η αγάπη κατοικεί" ["Pigaine ekei opou i agapi katoikei"] sounds a bit more poetic. Oh, I hate Greeklish!!!!!!! :-)

Oh I love Vicky's rhyme. Even if I felt like objecting to the use of agapi rather than erotas, it fits the metre so much better, it has my fullest approval (as though it were needed).
