    Reply surprised me I have to say…
    Why is it called Greek Kafeneio if Greek is not allowed here?
    I have not seen such restriction in Greece, I think…

    if Greek is not allowed here

    Hey, nobody said the Greek isn’t ALLOWED here.
    I just tried to point out that non-English posts in Kafeino Chats may not be read/understood/replied.

    Go ahead, post in Greek. Teach me Greek.

    Maybe should change the confusing name of the subforum. Howabout “Earthlings only — Martians STAY OUT!”

    την αράχνη του
    ανέβηκε στο στόμιο του νερού.
    κάτω ήρθε η βροχή
    και πλένεται η αράχνη έξω.
    έξω ήρθε ο ήλιος και
    στεγνώσει τη βροχή
    και την αράχνη του
    σηκώθηκε πάλι το στόμιο ξαφνικά.

    This was a poem.
    I handed it to Google Translate, and back:

    his spider
    climbed to the mouth of the water.
    the rain came down
    and the spider is washed out.
    Out came the sun and
    dry the rain
    and his spider
    the mouth suddenly rose.

    Εδώ σωπαίνουν τα πουλιά
    σωπαίνουν κι οι καμπάνες
    σωπαίνει κι ο πικρός Ρωμιός
    μαζί με τους νεκρούς του

    Και απα στην πέτρα της σιωπής
    τα νύχια του ακονίζει
    μονάχος κι αβοήθητος
    της λευτεριάς ταμένος
    Τη ρωμιοσύνη μην την κλαις
    εκεί που πάει να σκύψει
    με το σουγιά στο κόκκαλο
    με το λουρί στο σβέρκο

    Νάτη πετιέται απο ξαρχής
    κι αντριεύει και θεριεύει
    και καμακώνει το θεριό
    με το καμάκι του ήλιου

    Is this by chance not a song of Μίκης Θεοδωράκης (Mikis Theodorakis)?
    Looks like next one for me to learn! I will study this one to better understand but at first sounds like about fight for freedom…
    There must be a reason you picked this one?
    So far I know by heart only Βάρκα Στο Γυαλό and ΓΙΑΛΟ- ΓΙΑΛΟ (Εις τον αφρό της θάλασσας).
    I am not Greek myself (Εγώ ίμαι Πολωνός) here in USA but I have been trying to learn Greek for quite some time…

    It is a poem called Τη Ρωμιοσύνη μην την κλαις by Yiannis Ritsos/ that was indeed set to music by Μίκης Θεοδωράκης (Mikis Theodorakis) see here

    I think Greek poetry will be my next challenge… Music is much easier to memorize for the time being…
    Just want to mention a set of the most beautiful Greek songs sung by Polish singer Jolanta Waga:

    Σώπα μη μιλάς

    Silence! Do not speak. It’s a shame. Silence your voice. Hush!
    If speech is silver, silence is golden.
    The first words I heard as a child, whether I was crying, laughing, playing, they kept on telling me to “Be Silent!”
    At school they taught me half the truth, and told me: “Why do you care? Be Silent!”
    The first boy I fell in love was kissing me and was telling me:
    “Don’t say a word about it and Be Silent!”
    “Silence your voice and do not speak. Shut up”.
    And that lasted till I was twenty years old.
    The word of Authority against the silence of the Subordinate.
    I was looking at the blood on the pavement and they were telling me “Why do you care?” “You’ll get into trouble, Be Silent.”
    Later in my life my bosses were telling me “Don’t question orders. Pretend that you agree with them and Be Silent!”
    I got married and had children and taught them to be Silent.
    My husband was honest and hardworking and knew how to be Silent.
    He had a wise mother, that was telling him to be “Be Silent.”
    During leap years, neighbors were advising me:
    “Do not get involved. Pretend you did not see a thing and Be Silent”
    We may have not had any kind of great relationship between us,
    but were however united by Silence. “Be Silent” one of them was saying, “Be Silent” the other was responding, “Be Silent” the people upstairs were saying, “Be Silent” the people underneath were saying. “Be Silent” throughout the whole building and around the whole square.”Be Silent” across the vertical and parallel streets.
    We swallowed our tongues. We may have a mouth, but not a voice.
    We joined the “Be Silent” club” that gathered many,
    an entire city of great strength, but a mute one!
    We achieved a lot and reached so high that they gave us medals.
    And all so easy, just by being Silent.
    What a great art that phrase “Be Silent” can be.
    Teach it to your wife, teach it to your child, teach it to your mother in law. And when you feel the need to speak, forcefully remove your tongue out and Be Silent.Cut your tongue out and throw it to the dogs. It has become a useless body part, since you’re not using it correctly. By doing so, you will not have nightmares, guilt and doubts.
    You will not be ashamed of your children
    and you’ll save yourself from the trouble of talking,
    you won’t have to speak and say “you are so right, I’m with you”.
    Oh gosh! How much I wish I was able to speak!
    And you will not speak, you’ll become a windbag,
    you will be drooling instead of talking.
    Cut out your tongue, immediately cut it out.
    You don’t have any other choice.
    Be mute. Since you will not speak, it’s better to dare it.
    Cut out your tongue. At least be honest with yourself.
    In my plans and in my dreams, between sobs and fits, I hold my tongue. Cause I fear that the moment will come, where I won’t be able to withhold this urge and I ‘ll burst out without fear, but full of hope. And every time my throat will be filled with just one phoneme,
    with just one whisper, one stutter, one cry that tells me:
    SPEAK!!!

    The poem “ÇOK KONUŞMA” from the collection “NUTUK MAKINESI” (1958), written by the turkish writer and political activist, Aziz Nesin, narrated in greek by Marietta Realde.
    ==========================================
    “Σώπα μη μιλάς” του Τούρκου συγγραφέα και πολιτικού ακτιβιστή, Αζίζ Νεσίν (1915 — 1995) σε απαγγελία της Μαριέτας Ριάλδη.
    ==========================================
    Σώπα, μη μιλάς, είναι ντροπή, κόψ’ τη φωνή σου, σώπασε,
    κι επιτέλους αν ο λόγος είναι αργυρός, η σιωπή είναι χρυσός.
    Τα πρώτα λόγια, οι πρώτες λέξεις που άκουσα από παιδί,
    έκλαιγα, γέλαγα, έπαιζα, μου λέγαν “Σώπα”!
    Στο σχολείο μου ‘κρύψαν την αλήθεια τη μισή,
    και μου λέγαν : Εσένα τι σε νοιάζει ; Σώπα!
    Με φιλούσε το πρώτο αγόρι που ερωτεύτηκα και μου λέγε:
    “Κοίτα μην πεις τίποτα και “Σώπα!”
    Κόψε τη φωνή σου και μη μιλάς, σώπαινε.
    Και αυτό βάστηξε μέχρι τα είκοσι μου χρόνια.
    Ο λόγος του μεγάλου , η σιωπή του μικρού.
    Έβλεπα αίματα στο πεζοδρόμιο, “Τι σε νοιάζει;”, μου λέγαν, “θα βρεις το μπελά σου, Τσιμουδιά, Σώπα”.

    To ja Ci wytłumaczę.Jeżeli byłeś w Grecji(z tego co wyczytałem to byłeś),to szczególnie na prowincji Kafeneio to miejsce do dyskusji,polityki,plotek,wyborów i wszystkiego co się tyczy ich życia.Podobnie jak dawniej,wiejska gospoda w Polsce.

    Pozdrawiam serdecznie
