Tasos Livaditis-Poems, Volume II

Tasos Livaditis-Poems, Volume II
Night Visitor 1972
      Βάβραρες φυλές με μεγάλα πέλματα ανάκσαψαν την πατρική γη
και μόνο ένα χάνι ερειπωμένο έστεκε πλάι στο δρόμο, όπου
άφηναν τις ψήρες τους οι περαστικοί,
      σαν την ποιητή στο έλεος όλου του κόσμου.
Biblical Landscape II
Races of barbarians with large soles dug up our homeland
and only a small tumble down inn was standing
at the far end of the road where the passersby left their lice,
like a poet is left at the mercy of the world.
