Aris Adanis original
translated into English by Marilyn Tate Adanis
Aliki Beach in autumn hues,
just sandy footprints left by you
mystically adored, a dream
in colours rare and supreme.
On Sunday wintertime set in.
Your hands held cloudy skies within.
We are with you present in mind,
our mortal selves, though, left behind.
Springtime notes, musical array,
with lonely scents that bloom in May,
silent optical illusions
spectral vision of delusions.
In August I will join you there.
With a kiss your scarlet lips declare
your radiance in Aliki…
Your utter absence is the key.
