Seferis, Giorgos: Mythistorema 24. (Μυθιστόρημα ΚΔ´ in English)

Portre of Seferis, Giorgos

Μυθιστόρημα ΚΔ´ (Greek)

Εδώ τελειώνουν τα έργα της θάλασσας, τα έργα της αγάπης.
Εκείνοι που κάποτε θα ζήσουν εδώ που τελειώνουμε
αν τύχει και μαυρίσει στη μνήμη τους το αίμα και ξεχειλίσει
ας μη μας ξεχάσουν, τις αδύναμες ψυχές μέσα στ’ ασφοδίλια,
ας γυρίσουν προς το έρεβος τα κεφάλια των θυμάτων:
Εμείς που τίποτε δεν είχαμε θα τους διδάξουμε τη γαλήνη.

Mythistorema 24. (English)

Here end the works of the sea, the works of love.
Those who will some day live here where we end -
should the blood happen to darken in their memory and overflow -
let them not forget us, the weak souls among the asphodels,
let them turn the heads of the victims towards Erebus:
We who had nothing will school them in serenity.
