ΜΥΘΙΣΤΟΡΗΜΑ ΙΘ’

Κι άν ο αγέρας φυσά δε μας δροσίζει
κι ο ίσκιος μένει στενός κάτω απ’ τα κυπαρίσσια
κι όλο τριγύρω ανήφοροι στα βουνά,

μας βαραίνουν
οι φίλοι που δεν ξέρουν πια πώς να πεθάνουν.

 

MYTHISTOREMA XIX

Although the wind blows it doesn’t freshen us
and the shade is narrow under the cypresses
and all around uphill paths to the mountains;

they weigh heavy on us
the friends who don’t know how to die anymore.

~GEORGE SEFERIS-COLLECTED POEMS, translated by Manolis Aligizakis, Libros Libertad, Vancouver, Canada, 2012
