Tasos Livaditis – Poems, Volume II

ALL WHO tried to look for us vanished on the way and

those who finally rediscovered us found a simple

            name written on the wall.

Yet those who accepted the heavy day kept us


like women hold a basket with swaddling clothes.

Until the day’s trial ended and the dusk arrived which

you get to know as the years pass.
