Alkistis Protopsalti - Aigaio (Αιγαίο) (English translation)

English translation

Agean

When I was little girl
Poems they gave me to say
With the uniform
but I, with all the strikes
that I had in my heart
with the enemy
I say [Make conversation]
 
“Many have conquered me
you are not the only one”
They had my body
and they saw blue (color)
I the first ONE the AGEAN
 
One ribbon crossing
sidelong my shoulder
on a cliff climbed
“MY LAND, MY MIND” I’ve cried out
 
Day and night we are embraced
your wife Dafni, Foinika
from Theofilos given in the oil of that painting
Ah My SOUL you, mermaid
If HE lives you asked her, I was laughing
 
Catch from a pine tree a needle
to play the record on the open seas
 
I don’t have great height
But from ALPHA to OMEGA
I kneel before the Universe
 
I alter [transform] the will
into SEA
And from the saltiness
more bold
I the first ONE the AGEAN
 
Hail oh Hail VALIANT [Hellas]
LAND in the ashes of a Phoenix
from Theofilos given
in the oil of this painting
my marble Aphrodite
in our “Ah” [sigh] nobody, lies?[=isn’t it?]
which island drank in from the nose
foams of the waves and blood.
 
Ah My SOUL you, mermaid
If HE lives you asked her, I was laughing
Catch from a pine tree a needle
to play the record on the open seas
