Many Years Ago - Τόσα Χρόνια Πριν

Poem By Kostas Lagos

I told you many years ago

I will die before long

You didn't believe me

You laughed at me

What do you have to say now?

Σας το 'πα τόσα χρόνια πριν

Σύντομα το τέλος μου θα έρθει

Κανείς σας δε με πίστεψε

Όλοι σας αστειευτήκατε

Τι έχετε να πείτε τώρα;

When you don't hear His voice in the cicadas' singing?
How can you immerse yourself in ongoing prayer
When the melody of crickets doesn't bring you in katanyxis?

The sun melts the snow
