Nostalgia – two poems


two poems by Costas Montis
translated from the Greek
by Iakovos Garivaldis


Post-Death Nostalgia

We adored this Earth so, my Lord
with a love that I am afraid what is waiting us as we depart
is to find our minds staying with her
always running back to our own village,
always running back to our neighborhood.


To Life

Now that I expect to lose you soon
what of yours can I take with me and what should I leave behind!
