ΤΕΛΙΚΗ ΣΥΜΦΩΝΙΑ

Όταν η βροχή χτύπησε το τζάμι με τόνα της δάχτυλο,

το παράθυρο άνοιξε προς τα μέσα. Στο βάθος

ένα άγνωστο πρόσωπο, ένας ήχος—η δική σου φωνή;

Η φωνή σου δυσπιστούσε στ’ αυτί σου. Την άλλη μέρα

ο ήλιος κατηφόριζε στα χωράφια, σα μια κάθοδος

αγροτών με δρεπάνια και δικράνια. Βγήκες κ’ εσύ στο δρόμο

φωνάζοντας, χωρίς να ξέρεις τί φωνάζεις,

σταματώντας μια στιγμή μ’ ένα χαμόγελο κάτω απ’ τη φωνή σου

σαν κάτω απ’ τη ρόδινη, ολόφωτη ομπρέλα μιας γυναίκας

που σεργιάνιζε μπρος στο κικλίδωμα του πάρκου.

Εκεί αναγνώρισες απρόοπτα πως αυτή είταν η σωστή σου φωνή

σύμφωνη μ’ όλες τις ανύποπτες φωνές που γέμιζαν τον αέρα.

FINAL AGREEMENT

When the rain struck the window with one of its fingers

the window opened inward. Deep inside

an unknown person, a sound – your voice?

Your voice distrusted your ear. The next day

the sun went down the fields, like a descent of farmers

with scythes and pitchforks. You too went out to the street

yelling not knowing about what you were yelling,

stopping for a moment with a smile under your voice

as if under the rosy, fully illuminated umbrella of a woman

sauntering along the railing of the park.

There suddenly you recognized that this was your true voice

in agreement with all the unsuspecting voices filling the air.
