George Seferis-Collected Poems

Posted: 18/05/2022 by vequinox in Literature




Τὸ αἷμα σου πάγωνε κάποτε σὰν τὸ φεγγάρι,
μέσα στὴν ἀνεξάντλητη νύχτα τὸ αἷμα σου
ἅπλωνε τὶς ἄσπρες του φτεροῦγες πάνω
στοὺς μαύρους βράχους τὰ σχήματα τῶν δέντρων καὶ τὰ σπίτια
μὲ λίγο φῶς ἀπὸ τὰ παιδικά μας χρόνια.


Sometimes your blood froze like the moon

in the inexhaustible night your blood

spread its white wings over

the black rocks, the shapes of trees and the houses

with a bit of light from our childhood years.
