«…
στη στεριά δεν ζεῖ το ψάρι
μήτ’ ἀνθός στην ἀμμουδιά
κι οἱ Σουλιώτισσες δεν ζοῦνε
δίχως την ἐλευθεριά
~
on the land the fish does not live
neither does the flower on the sand
and (the) ‘Souliótisses’ do not live
without freedom

[ Note* :
“The Dance of Zalóggou” has
been in the lore
(based on “historical events”)
of the Ellenic credence of
«ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΙΑ ἢ ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ»
~ “FREEDOM or DEATH” ~
… «in~deed» …

(along with the Ellenic “flag’s stripes”
to “spell” these,
and the Ellenic “National Anthem”
of «ΥΜΝΟΣ ΕΙΣ ΤΗΝ ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΙΑΝ»
~ “Hymn to Eleutheria”)

“perfomed” by “Souliótisses”
(“females” from “Soúli”)
~ in the “early 1800s” ~
upon the heralding of
the “OttoMan empire’s army”
descending on to their village

«when & where»

they “formed” an open
“dance circle”
and, one~by~one
“jumped~off”
the precipice, with
“their children at hand”

… rather than,
“stay alive” under “rule” ]
