38237 - As we cross through Thrace

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

As we cross through Thrace
and we observe
from Alexandroupoli
right through to Xanthi
the beautiful nature
that others tried
to seize from us
and we remember
the occupied one
which we ought to
in order to follow
the mental schemata
of the National Revolution
when more
than a few rare
fighters of Hellenism
realize what it is
that is proper for the future.
