    Excellent again!

    Another poem:-

    Αναβάφτιση

    Renewal-Regeneration

    Λόγια φτωχά βαφτίζονται
    στην πίκρα και στο κλάιμα
    βγάζουν φτερά και πέτονται
    πουλιά και κελαηδάνε

    Και κειος ο λόγος ο κρυφός
    της λευτεριάς ο λόγος
    αντίς φτερά βγάζει σπαθιά
    και σκίζει τους αγέρες

    Poor words are baptised
    In bitterness and weeping:
    They put forth wings and fly
    Like birds and warble

    And that secret word
    The word of freedom
    Instead of wings puts forth swords
    And cleaves the winds.

    An English composer that, like the poet whom we have been considering, opens the gaps between the divine and the human. Both the composer and the poet seem to me to show that our lives become meaningless unless the "mists of contemporary banality" are penetrated and the idea of the sacred is restored. Beneath the dim unknown stands the divine within the shadows, calling us to freedom and leading us beyond the mists to that clarity, characteristic of great poetry and great music. Thanks, Earion.
