55550 - The music of the leaves

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

In the forest
the Teacher showed us
the music of the leaves.
All of their movements
constituted a symphony
in which all the trees participated
as if they were the instruments of an orchestra.
Everyone sat upon
the roots of a loved tree
as if it were our magic wand
which was able to follow
the instructions of the maestro
in order for another kind of an event
to take place
Besides, the Miss as well sat down with the guitar.
And then the first moves began
which showed the beauty
of autumn.
Even the colours of the leaves
told us a lot
if we were able to hear the silence.
And the spectacle was so beautiful
that we almost fainted
in the Forest.
