The living cemeteries

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou, Evi Charitidou

As the years of dead memory had passed,
the places where our parents lived
I loved again.

As the years of the bitter oblivion had passed,
to the places where our children quenched
I went again.

But, the passing of time
let me see
nothing but
the living cemeteries.
