The Fate of the Poet


Remorse dressed in black
in the lush field of my dreams
slender women eternal painted with lipstick
with necklaces, gifts in the chest of time
handing newborn feelings.
And this woman with the purple scarf at the waist

Franz Marc
Franz Marc

different kind from the others seems to me
embroidered on the edge of the scarf, an E
that I interpret as the hope
but it is known that people die
and slender women age
eternal painted with wrinkles.
The youth always mourn the old age
the pale life, cries for death.
Forgotten should you leave but better young!

Sofia Piperou
Original Version of the poem “The Fate of the Poet” written by Sofia Piperou
from a collection of poems named “Tannery”
Η ΜΟΙΡΑ ΤΟΥ ΠΟΙΗΤΗ

Μαυροφόρες τύψεις
στον καταπράσινο του ονείρου μου αγρό
λιγνές γυναίκες αιώνια βαμμένες με κραγιόν
με κολιέδες χαρίσματα στο στήθος του χρόνου
μοιράζουν τα νεογέννητα αισθήματα.
Κι αυτή η γυναίκα με το βυσσινί κασκόλ στη μέση
αλλιώτικη από τις άλλες φαίνεται
κεντημένο στην άκρη του μαντηλιού ένα Ε
που εγώ το ερμηνεύω ελπίδα
μα είναι γνωστό πως οι άνθρωποι πεθαίνουν
και οι λιγνές γυναίκες γερνούν
αιώνια βαμμένες με ρυτίδες.
Τα νιάτα πενθούν πάντα το γήρας
και η ζωή τον θάνατο ωχρή πως κλαίει.
Λησμονημένος θα φύγεις καλύτερα νέος!
