Tasos Livaditis-Poems, Volume II

POEMS 1958-1964

ΕΛΙΞΗΡΙΟΝ ΝΕΟΤΗΤΟΣ

Είεχε περάσει τα σαράντα, κι όμως ένοιωθε πάντοτε φοβι-

       σμένος

σαν παιδί, κ’ ίσως αυτός ο φόβος ήταν που τον κρατούσε

       κρεμασμένο και μετέωρο

σε μια θολή, αόριστη, μισοκατορθωμένη

νεότητα.

Elixir

He was more than forty years old yet he always

            felt afraid

like a child, and perhaps that fear kept him as if

hanging and floating

in a foggy, vague, half-experienced youth.
