Tasos Livaditis – Poems Volume II

Posted: 01/12/2022 by vequinox in Literature

THEN who covers the acts of mortals halfway

so they won’t know what finally happened since

they had expelled us from our childhood before

            we could learn anything

while the women, ominous during the day, unknown

during the night, reeled the road of our dreams

            in their spindle.

And only, at midnight, as we returned from the taverns

he was standing at the edge of the street solemnly

kneading our misfortune with invisible miracles.
