Yannis Ritsos-Poems, Selected Books, Volume I



Παράξενος άνθρωπος. Το πρόσωπο του κάθε τόσο αλλάζει.

Αλλάζουν και τα λόγια του. Κι ενώ πριν λίγο κάρφωνε σκυμμένος

το ξύλινο κασόνι με τα γυαλικά, ξέφνου τον βλέπεις

να βγαίνει ορμητικά στον κήπο και να ραβδίζει ένα δέντρο.


Strange man His face changes so often

His words change And a little while ago he was

stooping to nail the wooden crate with the glassware suddenly

you see him run to the garden and strike a tree with his cane
