Non-flying wings

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou




Everybody was asking him
why he wouldn’t open up his wings.
Everybody was asking him
why he wouldn’t fly in the skies.
No one though
understood his words.
Only when they heard
his music
they felt his truth.
He had wings
merely to protect them.
That was the only reason
for his existence.
