Armenian

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Maria Stambolidou




I didn’t know what the letters of the monument were saying...
They were in Armenian.
But I wanted to know and looked around.
Then I saw the little girl who was weeping quietly.
- What is written here?
- She didn’t reply immediately...
She spelled the strange phrase,
looked at me and said:
- Our history, their sin.
- Thank you, my life.
