Καβαφης - Το πρωτο Σκαλι

Εις τον Θεόκριτο παραπονιούνταν
μια μέρα ο νέος ποιητής Ευμένης·
«Τώρα δυο χρόνια πέρασαν που γράφω
κ’ ένα ειδύλλιο έκαμα μονάχα.
Το μόνον άρτιόν μου έργον είναι.
Aλλοίμονον, είν’ υψηλή το βλέπω,
πολύ υψηλή της Ποιήσεως η σκάλα·
κι απ’ το σκαλί το πρώτο εδώ που είμαι
ποτέ δεν θ’ ανεβώ ο δυστυχισμένος.»
Είπ’ ο Θεόκριτος· «Aυτά τα λόγια
ανάρμοστα και βλασφημίες είναι.
Κι αν είσαι στο σκαλί το πρώτο, πρέπει
νάσαι υπερήφανος κ’ ευτυχισμένος.
Εδώ που έφθασες, λίγο δεν είναι·
τόσο που έκαμες, μεγάλη δόξα.
Κι αυτό ακόμη το σκαλί το πρώτο
πολύ από τον κοινό τον κόσμο απέχει.
Εις το σκαλί για να πατήσεις τούτο
πρέπει με το δικαίωμά σου νάσαι
πολίτης εις των ιδεών την πόλι.
Και δύσκολο στην πόλι εκείνην είναι
και σπάνιο να σε πολιτογραφήσουν.
Στην αγορά της βρίσκεις Νομοθέτας
που δεν γελά κανένας τυχοδιώκτης.
Εδώ που έφθασες, λίγο δεν είναι·
τόσο που έκαμες, μεγάλη δόξα.»


Kavafis - The first step


Young poet Eymenis one day was complaining to Theocritos.

"Two years have gone by and Ι only wrote a single poem about an affair.

It is my only completed work. Alas, the ladder of poetry is too tall,

and from this first step I am on, I shall never go further up"

So Theocritos replied:

"Those words are both offending and a blasphemy.

Being on the first step should make you proud.

Where you are at, is no small deed.

What you accomplished, is great glory.

This first step is so far away from the common people.

To step on it, you have to own the right to be a citizen in the world of ideas.

And in that city it is hard to get registered.

No opportunist can manage to slip his way through it's firm legislators.

Where you are at, is no small deed.

What you accomplished, is great glory.
