Composer:  Tsoupaki, Calliope

Zywa The playing way

Cleanliness and routine
a blessing of calm

giving me energy
and making me jump
in spin, the loop is in
out spout, the loop is out


I'm going wild in the garden
party of earthly delights
I jump to the fruit, ripe and green
every day again, it has no end

as long as it lasts -
until I write smaller and smaller
circles around my centre
under the caprices

A blessing of calm
cleanliness and routine

I'm thinking my grief

meer dan ik het uiten kan --


Save me! Redeem me!


Ik denk mijn verdrietIch denke mein Leid
meer dan ik het uiten kan --mehr als dass ich's äußern kann --
Red me! Verlos me!Hilfe! Rette mich!
