'This is no fight in marble threshing floors,
Digenis standing there and Charon confronting him.
Here the whole earth rises with the dead,
and with Death itself tramples on its own death.

Up in the mountains, up on their peaks
the Resurrection glows at once, a great tumult breaks out.

Greece leads the dance, over there, with antartes,
- the dance takes a thousand forms, thousands are the tables -
and the dead standing opposite are the first among the revellers!'
