In the perivoli she walks

Νικόλαος Μαυροκορδάτος

«Στο περιβόλι περπατεί...»

Στο περιβόλι περπατεῖ,
τα χορταράκια που πατεῖ
τα ίχνη της γλυκοφιλοῦν
κι ευθύς ιδές τα πως ανθοῦν!

Τ’ αγκάθια σαν την στοχασθοῦν,
ανάγκη είν’ να φοβηθοῦν∙
να την εγγίσουν δεν τολμοῦν,
μον’ σκύφτουν και την προσκυνοῦν.

Στα χόρτ’ απάνω την θωρεῖς,
άνθος πως είναι την θαρρεῖς∙
κι οι άνεμοι όπου φυσοῦν,
ότι αναπνέει και μεθοῦν.

Και τ’ αηδονάκια που λαλοῦν
τα χείλη της γλυκοφιλοῦν,
τα ρόδα πλια καταφρονοῦν∙
- όχ, πώς φωνάζουν και πονοῦν! -

Και τα νερά παραστρατοῦν
στους πόδας της να κυλισθοῦν,
να τα πατήση να ‘φρανθοῦν
κι ευθύς ευθύς να γλυκανθοῦν.

Τα σύννεφα να μαζωχθοῦν,
τον Ήλιο-μπέη να λυπηθοῦν,
‘λαφρά ‘λαφρά να σκεπασθῆ,
να μην την διῆ και σκοτισθῆ!

Our first postcard ever from France

A new walnut wine recipe This week we are so excited to have received our first postcard ever! Anya Cockle-Bétian, from France has sent us the most heartily thank-you note ever, but most importantly a walnut wine recipe to taste with our future guests! Sofia is especially happy for the recipe, to be completely honest! We are definitely going to try it in the end of May – beginning of June; as Anya advices us!
Thank you once more Anya and Eva for staying with us. It was a genuine pleasure meeting you, indeed.
