Summer 1980
30 years ago

All right.

on the island of Euboea.

Boys and girls
jumping over the fire
burning the May 1st wreath.

Young girls
carrying a jug of water 
from the village fountain.
Boys and girls putting their trinkets
in the jug.
Take out a trinket
find out who will be your life's companion.


Time goes its course
but our lives stay with us.
love, Irene
