With the First Smile of the Sky


With the first smile of the sky,
as the first glimmer emerged
awakened from the sweet lullaby
and stood at the edge of the balcony

By the first glimmer
the morning breeze caressing her hair
bathes in the scents
and seemed to silently rejoice

The sun sweet, shining was falling to her white handmidnightAllAGlimmerProduct_1024x1024
Was heating her red as roses lips
Was kissing her black as night hair
and was slowly breathing

With the first smile of the sky,
as the first glimmer emerged,
she saw love
At the clock’s quagmire

Her mind went back to the sweet lullaby
and her heart was singing along
They traveled with the wind, and became one
And everything rejoiced

She felt the golden ray burning her hand
at a glance all were lost, like the fragrant breeze
mind returned
nodded and that was all the dreams
Original Version of the poem “With the First Smile of the Sky”
Written by Alexandra Zevgiti
Με το Πρώτο Χαμόγελο τ’ Ουρανού

Με το πρώτο χαμόγελο τ’ ουρανού,
σαν πρόβαλε η πρώτη αχτίδα
ξύπνησε απ’ το γλυκό νανούρισμα
και στάθηκε στου μπαλκονιού τη ρήγα

Με ‘κείνη την πρώτη αχτίδα
το πρωινό αγέρι της χαϊδεύει τα μαλλιά
τα λούζει με αρώματα
και φάνηκε ν’ αγαλλιάζει σιωπηρά

Ο ήλιος γλυκός, έλαμπε πέφτοντας στο λευκό της χέρι
Ζέσταινε τα κόκκινα ,σαν ρόδα χείλια της
Αναφιλούσε τα μαύρα, σαν τη νύχτα μαλλιά της
και κοντανάσαινε

Με το πρώτο χαμόγελο τ’ ουρανού,
σαν πρόβαλε η πρώτη αχτίδα,
αντίκρυσε τον έρωτα
στου ρολογιού το τέλμα

Ο νους γύρισε πίσω στο γλυκό νανούρισμα
κι η καρδιά σιγοτραγούδησε
Ταξίδεψαν με τον αγέρα, γινήκαν ένα
κι ευφράνθηκε το πέρας

Ένιωσε τη χρυσαχτίδα να της καίει το χέρι
με μια ματιά χάθηκαν όλα, σαν το μυρωδάτο αγέρι
ο νους επέστρεψε
κι έγνεψε πως ήταν όλα ονείρατα
