Snow

Share

N.N. Trakakis translation
of Miltos Sahtouris’ original in Greek

The snow that falls outside!
a God
like the ice-vendor of death
with eyes
bloodshot from fever

The smoke of God on the roof
the woman screams
in bed
like a frozen pigeon
the snow that falls outside!

This poem was written by leading Modern Greek poet, Miltos Sachtouris (1919-2005),
