G. Alexander Tanaskidis Lampousnakis Poems
Aş K İ Ki Kiş Iliktir - L...
Değ iş ir rüzgarı n yönü, Solar ansı zı n yapraklar; Ş aş ı rı r yolunu denizde gemi, Boş una bir liman arar.
Add some red wine in our tumblers! Add some more! Add a sea! The bridal torches' festal rays,
She wakes again to a day Where the air is spring-drenched with daffodils And all the earth is rain-softened, flexible. She envies it while she wonders where winter has gone
She wakes again to a day
Where the air is spring-drenched with daffodils
And all the earth is rain-softened, flexible.
She envies it while she wonders where winter has gone
And when exactly the dark buds
Will begin to pierce through her white and deadened flesh.
Stretching now, she yawns
And feels her muscles groan,
