ενώνει πιο πολύ
απ᾿ το κορμί
γι᾿ αυτό το αποφεύγουν
οι πιο πολλοί…/

“…the young Prince rode on towards the castle. The drawbridge was down and, holding his horse by the reins, he crossed over it. Immediately he saw the inhabitants draped all over the steps, the halls and courtyards, and said to himself,
“Good heavens! They’re dead!” But in a moment, he realised that they were sound asleep. “Wake up! Wake up!” he shouted, but nobody moved. Still thoroughly astonished, he went into the castle and again discovered more people, lying fast asleep on the floor. As though led by a hand in the complete silence, the Prince finally reached the room where the beautiful Princess lay fast asleep. For a long time he stood gazing at her face, so full of serenity, so peaceful, lovely and pure, and he felt spring to his heart that love he had always been searching for and never found. Overcome by emotion, he went close, lifted the girl’s little white hand and gently kissed it . . .
At that kiss, the prlncess qulckly opened her eyes, and wakening from her long long sleep, seeing the Prince beside her, murmured:
“Oh, you have come at last! I was waiting for you in my dream. I’ve waited so long!”
Just then, the spell was broken…”

*Κύλησε το nutshell και βρήκε τη στήλη του.
Ό,τι είχα να πω, το υπέθεσα, απώθησα, προσέλκυσα, άκουσα, είδα, έγραψα…
Απλά, λιτά και απέριττα…
