Poems of Asia Minor and Pontos

 

 

 



 

 

The first poem is written by Simos Lianides and published in the folklore magazine Pontian Focus of Thessaloniki, in the 10th issue, July-August 1976. It is dedicated on the one hand to the uprooting from the ancestral homes, with a strong emotional burden of memory, sorrow and grief, on the other hand to the new homeland and the establishment in Kalamaria. Especially in the second piece, the poem is extremely intense and descriptive.

 

The second poem is of an unknown author and refers to the Genocide of the Greeks of Pontos and some of the losses it caused both in a material but much more on a mental level. It presents the dialogue between a father and a son who lived through the horrific events and the son proposes to his father to go to their place of origin. However, the father refuses, as he was not going to stand it.
