40649 - Dimitris’ gifts

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Dimitris’ gifts
are not merely
from the past
but heirlooms
of the future
which ought to
be saved
from the oblivion
and the indifference
of societies
and for that reason
we’ve decided
to enshrine them
within the treasure
of Humanity
so that they may continue
to live
even afterwards.
