Christening preparations

Κοριτσάκι μου,
μὲς στὸ βουβὸ πηγάδι τοῦ φεγγαριοῦ
σοῦ ῾πέσε ἀπόψε τὸ πρῶτο δαχτυλίδι σου.
Δὲν πειράζει.
Ἀργότερα θὰ φτιάξεις ἄλλο
νὰ παντρευτεῖς τὸν κόσμο μὲς στὸν ἥλιο.
Γιατὶ δὲν εἶναι κοριτσάκι
νὰ μάθεις μόνο ἐκεῖνο ποὺ εἶσαι,
ἐκεῖνο ποὺ ἔχεις γίνει,
εἶναι νὰ γίνεις
ὅ,τι ζητάει
ἡ εὐτυχία τοῦ κόσμου.
Ἄλλη χαρὰ
δὲν εἶναι πιὸ μεγάλη
ἀπ᾿ τὴ χαρὰ ποὺ δίνεις
Νὰ τὸ θυμᾶσαι κοριτσάκι.
Κοριτσάκι μου,
θέλω νὰ σοῦ φέρω
τὰ φαναράκια τῶν κρίνων
νὰ σοῦ φέγγουν τὸν ὕπνο σου.Θέλω νὰ σοῦ φέρω ἕνα περιβολάκι
ζωγραφισμένο μὲ λουλουδόσκονη
πάνω στὸ φτερὸ μιᾶς πεταλούδας
νὰ σεργιανάει τὸ γαλανὸ ὄνειρό σου.
Θέλω νὰ σοῦ φέρω
ἕνα σταυρουλάκι αὐγινὸ φῶς
δυὸ ἀχτίνες σταυρωτὲς ἀπὸ τοὺς στίχους μου
νὰ σοῦ ξορκίζουν τὸ κακὸ
νὰ σοῦ φωτᾶνε μὴ σκοντάψεις.

Here are a few photos of the theme of my little one's Christening that is soon approaching: cherubs, a bit of a vintage feel with loads of pink splashes, embroidery, crochet, lace and a hint of sand, white, and turquoise to pay tribute to the Ionian sea, particularly Lefkada and Preveza where it is going to take place. The invitations, the bomboniere, the "martyrika" (witness pins), even the candle are made by mama herself (that's me, oh yes). A big "thank you" to my friend Γιώργος who helped me with the printing and graphic design. Behind the thought cloud pops her precious name...for more photos, wait until after the big event!

and this is her song
