Tis Ekthromis - Greek Sonnet

Της εκδρομής - Greek Sonnet

Αν κάπου οι φιγούρες του χορού,
φύλλων του ανέμου σε βουνού πλαγιές,
με όνειρα πετάνε τ' ουρανού,
και κυβερνούν παράλληλες ζωές.

Αν ταξιδεύεις πάλι στις τροχιές,
του ουρανού εικόνες χαραυγής,
με τα κλειδιά σε αυγινές ιαχές,
Αγγέλων και μνημών της εκδρομής.

Χαρές παλιές, ασπρόμαυρη γιορτή,
στον λογισμό και στ' όνειρο, ξανά,
απ' τ' ακροδάχτυλα περνούν ζωή.

Χορός των φύλλων πάλι σε ζητά,
Ν' ανέβεις, νάν' απέραντ' η ψυχή,
Και οι ευχές του αγέρα στα μαλλιά.


If somewhere the figures of the dance,
of leaves in wind on mountain slopes,
with celestial dreams fly above.
and predominate the parallels of lives.

If you travel back to the trajectories
of celestial icons in breaking dawns,
with keys when Aurora emboldens,
angels and memories of our excursion.

Old delights, a black and white feast,
within mentation and dream, once more,
through our fingertips transmit life.

Dance of the leaves again requests from you,
to ascend, to be boundless in your soul,
With the wishes of the wind in your comb.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
