  3. CAVAFY 13

    2013—the 150th anniversary of the poet's birth

    13 poems by C.P. CAVAFY
    song cycle by LENA PLATONOS
    stage visuals by DIMITRIS PAPAIOANNOU

    stage visual for the CAVAFY 13 concert


    When suddenly, at midnight, you hear
    an invisible procession going by
    with exquisite music, voices,
    don’t mourn your luck that’s failing now,
    work gone wrong, your plans
    all proving deceptive—don’t mourn them uselessly.
    As one long prepared, and graced with courage,
    say goodbye to her, the Alexandria that is leaving.
    Above all, don’t fool yourself, don’t say
    it was a dream, your ears deceived you:
    don’t degrade yourself with empty hopes like these.
    As one long prepared, and graced with courage,
    as is right for you who proved worthy of this kind of city,
    go firmly to the window
    and listen with deep emotion, but not
    with the whining, the pleas of a coward;
    listen—your final delectation—to the voices,
    to the exquisite music of that strange procession,
    and say goodbye to her, to the Alexandria that you are losing.



    Σὰν ἔξαφνα, ὥρα μεσάνυχτ᾽, άκουσθεῖ
    ἀόρατος θίασος νὰ περνᾶ
    μὲ μουσικὲς ἐξαίσιες, μὲ φωνὲς—
    τὴν τύχη σου ποὺ ἐνδίδει πιά, τὰ ἔργα σου
    ποὺ ἀπέτυχαν, τὰ σχέδια τῆς ζωῆς σου
    ποὺ βγῆκαν ὅλα πλάνες, μὴ ἀνωφέλετα θρηνήσεις.
    Σὰν ἕτοιμος ἀπὸ καιρό, σὰ θαρραλέος,
    ἀποχαιρέτα την, τὴν Ἀλεξάνδρεια ποὺ φεύγει.
    Πρὸ πάντων νὰ μὴ γελασθεῖς, μὴν πεῖς πὼς ἦταν
    ἕνα ὄνειρο, πὼς ἀπατήθηκεν ἡ ἀκοή σου·
    μάταιες ἐλπίδες τέτοιες μὴν καταδεχθεῖς.
    Σὰν ἕτοιμος ἀπὸ καιρό, σὰ θαρραλέος,
    σὰν ποὺ ταιριάζει σε ποὺ ἀξιώθηκες μιὰ τέτοια πόλι,
    πλησίασε σταθερὰ πρὸς τὸ παράθυρο,
    κι ἄκουσε μὲ συγκίνησιν, άλλ᾽ ὄχι
    μὲ τῶν δειλῶν τὰ παρακάλια καὶ παράπονα,
    ὡς τελευταία ἀπόλαυσι τοὺς ἤχους,
    τὰ ἐξαίσια ὄργανα τοῦ μυστικοῦ θιάσου,
    κι ἀποχαιρέτα την, τὴν Ἀλεξάνδρεια ποὺ χάνεις.
