Kristi Stassinopoulou


(from  the album « Echotropia » music: Kalyviotis, lyrics: Stassinopoulou)


Beehives and wildflowers made me drunk and I run

Dizzied by the buzz I slide in the light and fall down


I slide in the light and I fall in the palaces of the sun

In the scents of the grass, birds fly in my two eyes


Ah my revived soul, dressed in spring

Live only for one day, like a puppy in the wind


Beehives and wildflowers got tangled in my hair

Bees are springing my joy with pollen


I laugh and I whirl to the drunken sun

The colors dance around me, the whole of nature gasps
