ΗΝΙΟΧΟΣ

Πῆρες τή δημοσιά πού χυμάει
ἀπό τούς σκοτεινούς μηρούς τῶν Δελφῶν
σάν λυγερή ἀνατριχίλα σαΐτας.
Ἰσομέτρητος
στό ἐρωτηματικό τους ἀνάστημα.
Δόνησες τήν ἀτάραγη χαλικωσιά της
μέ πολεμικά κάλιγα καί τίς βροντές τοῦ καταρράχτη.
Ἔσφιγγες στά χέρια τά γκέμια τῆς θάλασσας
καί μιά χαλκωματένια λάμψη.
Κι ἔρχοντας
μίλησες γιά τή γαλήνη τοῦ θεοῦ
πού βυζαίνει τή θηλή ἑνός ἄστρου.

CHARIOTEER

You took the main road that dashes down
from the dark thighs of Delphi
like the arrow’s lissome quiver.
Symmetrical
to their questionable stature.
You vibrated its unruffled gravel-road
with polemic sandals and the waterfall thunder.
You held tight in your hands the reigns of the sea
and a reddish brown gleam.
Arriving
you talked about the serenity of the god
who suckles the nipple of a star.

~Δημήτρη Λιαντίνη-Οι Ώρες των Άστρων/μετάφραση Μανώλη Αλυγιζάκη
~Dimitris Liantinis-Hour of the Stars/translated by Manolis Aligizakis
