Clay: 36

Yannis Ritsos

Yellow afternoon
empty houses
water flowing in the hallway.
Where's the plumber?
Where's the poem?

Athens—January 20, 1978

from Clay (1980) [Collected Poems: IDelta ---pg 95]

This book is my favorite. I have been reading since four years and I always discover something new. I'm greek and I read it in prototype. but it is interesting when I read them in translated versions.I love Ritsos and your translations are θαυμάσιες.
P.S. May I use some of translated verses of yours in my blog as perfecting of my photos?
