(February 17, 2014)

inspired by poetry by H. Poświatowska (excerpt)

Halina Poswiatowska d. 11 October 1967
translated from the Polish
by Marek Lugowski marek@enteract.com

tutaj są głosy ptasie
i zapach pękającego drzewa
świty którymi się złoci
w leniwym obrocie ziemia

tutaj są moje ręce
i twoje ręce
i ostrokrzew pragnienia
rozrastający się we mnie

here are the bird voices
and the scent of a bursting tree
the dawns with which the earth goes golden
in a lazy spin

here are my hands
and your hands
and the holly of desire
growing fast within me
