POEMS BY Dr. ZANNETA KALYVA-PAPAIOANNOU

 

TO MY SON YIANNIS

I love you so much,

as long as the vastness

of sky.

I love you so much,

as much as the depth

of  the sea!

I love you so much,

as long as oxygen exists

on the planet.

I love you so much,

as long as sun rises

and night calms the Earth!

THE PEACEFUL BIRD

                        A joyful bird

                        flaps its wings

                        to get away from its cage

                        to fly freely in the sky.

                        Once it was flying down

                        near the earth and other times

                        it was flying in the clouds,

                        alone and free with pride.

                        It was always flying

                        in all the places of the earth

                        and it never rest during night

                        or in the midday.

                        A sweet message of peace

                        the white dove

                        bring to us,

                        for all the people of the world.

                        It was singing for freedom

                        and for brotherhood.

                        With an olive branch

                        it was praising the Peace.
