There, the end of another year
is here once again.
how times flies
and overtakes me!
it overtakes me and ruthlessly
pushes me into the abyss.

i am searching for allies, to beat it.
to slip by it , to save myself.
And never to be defeated by it.
To make it obey to what i want.
To send it back to the early seventys
and stop time there.
To be blessed again
with a never ending celebration,
for the joy of life.
to  savour once again
the sweet fruits of justice and peace/
And live on the rhythm of celebration
what ever life i am left with.


To caressed me
and i come to life
the creation smell sweet
the feast bigins.

i dress up in morning
in colours in light
i worship the trees,
the earth , the water.

I kissed the noon
and my heart grew wings
it fluttered
it searches for the embrace.

i be friended the  down
it fell in my two hands
i married  life
and had three children

i named  them love,
justice and humanity
and i have happiness
as my constant companion
and i am not afraid of death
nor of pitfalls.


Since the mythical times
they stand like bright beacons
of love of friendship
Pelops and Hercules

And the flames that light
at the altar of Olympia
are the people's compass
to the path they paved

Fine men and women
arrive on time once more
from the neighbourhoods of the world
to compete for the wreath.

In friendship and love
in the stadium once again
they will strive for peace
and world happiness.
