I sent two birds to the Red Apple Tree… The Marbled King – ”O Marmaromenos Vasilias”

”O Marmaromenos Vasilias” (The Marbled King)
”Ο Μαρμαρωμένος Βασιλιάς ”

Music: Apostolos Kaldaras
Lyrics: Pythagoras
Voice: Haris Alexiou

I sent two birds to the Red Apple Tree
who speak of fate.
One was killed, the other wounded
not one returned.

About the marbled king
neither voice nor song.
Yet he’s been sung to the children
like a fairytale by their grandmother.

I sent two birds to the Red Apple Tree
two Crag Martins [swallows’ species]
but they stayed there and became dream
and tearful years.

About the marbled king
neither voice nor song.
Yet he’s been sung to the children
like a fairytale by their grandmother.
