Here in this spring | Dylan Thomas




Καλησπέρα.


Για σήμερα, ένα ποίημα του μέγιστου Ουαλού ποιητή Ντίλαν Τόμας. 



DYLAN THOMAS



HERE IN THIS SPRING 



Here in this spring, stars float along the void;

Here in this ornamental winter

Down pelts the naked weather;

This summer buries a spring bird. 




Symbols are selected from the years'

Slow rounding of four seasons' coasts,

In autumn teach three seasons' fires

And four birds' notes. 




I should tell summer from the trees, the worms

Tell, if at all, the winter's storms

Or the funeral of the sun;

I should learn spring by the cuckooing, 

And the slug should teach me destruction.



A worm tells summer better than the clock,

The slug's a living calendar of days;

What shall it tell me if a timeless insect


Says the world wears away?
