Scarecrow - Σκιάχτρο Poem by Kostas Lagos

Scarecrow - Σκιάχτρο

Rating: 4.7


Make no mistake dear passerby

It isn't Deaththat laughs like a raven

upon the scarecrow of your existence

It's Life that slipped away while you

were making theories about living



Μην μπερδεύεσαι περαστικέ αγαπητέ

Δεν ειν' ο Θάνατος που σαν κόρακας γελά

πάνω από το σκιάχτρο της ύπαρξής σου

Ειν' η Ζωή που ξεγλίστρησε την ώρα

που θεωρίες έφτιαχνες για το πως να ζεις

What a well crafted and intelligent poem. I confess that these lines knocked me to my knees--'It isn't Death that laughs like a raven upon the scarecrow of your existence'
