39821 - At the salon of Time

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The coat of arms of the Knights of Rhodes weren’t speaking.
They provoked however the thought.
And they created memories
and not merely recollections.
The Grand Masters belonged hereupon
in the history of Humanity
because they had resisted
not in order to win
just as in 1444
but in order to continue even after 1523
in Malta
and there to win
the Ottoman barbarity
definitively
in 1565.
He had all that in mind
without ever forgetting
either the siege of Candia
nor that of Famagusta
how could he after all ?
