Looking at his worn-out shoes he reflected:
in melancholy is God revealed;
All those clouds that come
and go in our dreams
kindly sprinkling our sleep
are trustworthy messages and rarely deceptive.

Sorrow for the fragility of things
caters for our faith, especially at night,
when people grow weary of their dealings
and remain crouched, expecting nothing.

Translated from the Greek by Yannis Goumas
