Yannis Ritsos-Poems, Selected Books, Volume III

Ημερολόγια Εξορίας//Exile Diaries

22 Μαίου

Ήρθε το απόγευμα όπως έρχεται

κάποιος που λείπει πολλά χρόνια

με κάτι αποσκευές ξεθωριασμένες

όλο σφραγίδες από ξένα τελωνεία.

Για μας ήρθε.

Δε μας γνωρίζει.

Τον γνωρίσαμε.

22nd of May

The afternoon arrived like

one who was away for years

with discolored suitcases

full of stamps from foreign

customs officers.

He came for us

he doesn’t knows us

we got to know him.
