Skarimpas/Spanos: “Broken Ship” (Greek music)

No news, just a poem. A popular Greek song. I heard last night at a poetry and music event in downtown Athens…



Broken Ship (Σπασμένο Καράβι) – Lyrics by Yiannis Skarimpas

Broken ship over there in the deep am I

so to be
with no masts, without sails
to be sleeping
The place to be fluffy and the coast around
With the wreck tilt and the bow there
where I bent
With the sea without life and the fish dead
so to be
and the stunning and the stars far away
to be watching
The hours without beat and the days in grief
without grace
and so hollow and still in silent nights
the moon

So I shall be ship demolished dead
so to be
in dead beach and hollow water 
to be sleeping

Music: Yiannis Spanos, Performance: Kostas Karalis
