2577 - Beginning of resistance

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

We fell altogether
on the wheat color
so that our land’s death
couldn’t separate us.

We grasped soil of stone
shortly before embracing
our homeland’s history
for the last time.

Under the people’s body
we lost our first hope
to liberate memory
from silence of obscurity.
