Poem by George Seferis

Searched: (("george seferis" knee)) (("george seferis" scar)) (("george seferis" knee -wounded -injury))
+ all of the above in Greek

I'm trying to get out of having an obvious Odysseus connotation while still linking back to Greek poetry and I want to reference a poem, which I'm sure is by George Seferis, in which some random old man has a scar on his knee. It's definitely not the one about Penelope by Yiannis Ritsos - the reference is more subtle than that. I remember reading it a couple of years ago, and it's what gave me the idea for this piece, but I can't find the exact poem now.

Does anyone know what the poem is, or know where I can find a searchable collection of Seferis' poems? I have a paper copy, but only in English, so I could be missing out in translation.
