Poems of Asia Minor and Pontos

 

 



 

 

The first poem was written by Simos Lianidis and published in the folklore magazine Pontiaki Estia Thessaloniki, in its 10th issue, July-August 1976. It is dedicated on the one hand to the uprooting from the ancestral homes, with a strong emotional load of memory, sorrow and lamentation, and on the other hand to the new homeland and the settlement in Kalamaria. Especially in the second part, the poem is extremely intense and descriptive.

 

The second poem is by an unknown author and refers to the Genocide of the Greeks of Pontus and in some of the losses it caused both materially but much more mentally. It presents the dialogue between a father and son who lived through the atrocious events and the son suggests to his father that they should go to their place of origin. However, the father refuses, as he was not going to endure it.
