Ποιειν Και Πραττειν - create and do

Poetry

Brendan Kennelly and Katerina Anghelaki Rooke      Myth of the City, Crete 1995

 

Poets and Poetry in motion


If you wish to take poetry with you, speak with the pavement

especially in cities where people prepare for an uncertain future,

but if you do so, make sure not to forget to look up to see the blue sky!

Life passes by, and nothing stands still, but time after time we see the stars,

and streets become rivers in which poets fish for daily quotes about life!

But if people cannot listen to their own poetic voice, doubt shall not make a dent

in a system inclined to make us into cynics who merely hope things will work out.
