55552 - The leaves which spoke

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

At school no one spoken for a while
even the Miss,
only her eyes spoke
in the language of joy.
Her emotion was enormous
and she was trying to hide it.
But we understood it
and we did not leave her alone.
We asked her about many details
about what we had seen
in the forest.
She started therefore showing us
new aspects
that we had never noticed.
She also showed us her guitar
and spoken to us about her strings.
Then we asked of her
to play for us
a musical piece
which was reminiscent of the Forest.
With the first notes
we’ve returned to the places
we had visited
and our eyes wept.
