The Lily (Ο Κρίνος)

Ο ΚΡΙΝΟΣ
Ξάφνιασμα κι ανατριχίλα
σαν κι αυτό δεν είδα
είναι - λέω - Φως περαστικό
που το σβήω από καιρό.

Μα ετούτο όλο ανάφτει
και με καίει και με κάφτει
είναι δεν είναι περαστικό
συνεχώς το πολεμώ.

Μην και το διώχναν ξένα φιλιά
που ΄ναι και περαστικά;
Μόνο αν σταθεί, εδώ, Κείνος,
σαν ερωτευμένος Κρίνος!

The Lily
Horror and shivering
Like this I did not see
It is - I say - Light passive
Which I shut it out for a long time.

But that's all about it
And he burns me and he falls over me
Is not passive
I continually fight it.

Do not let go of foreign kisses
Which yes and passing?
Only if he stands, here, He,
Like.. In love Lily! ..
