The fingers of the carob tree

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou, Evi Charitidou

The fingers of the carob tree
showed the land in pain
but the sky, was holding
a handful of light
above the entrapped one
so that we won't forget
the church of the young girl
who did not want to die.
So, for the first time we saw
the fingers of faith in the tree
which was dripping like the wound.
