Tasos Livaditis-Selected Poems

     Καθόταν έξω στα χωράφια και σχεδίαζε πάνω στο χώμα
πουλιά. Μα τα πουλιά ζητούσαν ουρανό. Τότε σχεδίασε
γύρω τους την αιώνια θλίψη.
     Και τα πουλιά πέταξαν.
      He would sit out in the fields and draw birds
on the soil. But the birds yearned for the sky. Then
all around them he drew the eternal sorrow.
      And the birds flew away.
