Wenus

На далекой звезде Венере…

Na dalekiej planecie Wenus
Slonce swieci stokroc zlocisciej,
Tam na Wenus, ach, tam na Wenus
Drzewa maja blekitne liscie.

Spiewne, nieujarzmione wody,
Wodospady, gejzery, rzeki
W dzien spiewaja wolnosci ody,
W nocy swieca jak ognik lekki.

Tam na Wenus, ach, tam na Wenus
Nie ma wladczych slow ani szorstkich,
Bo narzecze aniolów z Wenus
Same tylko zna samogloski.

Jesli mówia ea i ai —
Jest obietnic w tym slodkie drzenie,
Uo, ao - o starym raju
Pozlocistym neci wspomnieniem.

Tam na Wenus, ach, tam na Wenus
Przedsmiertnego nie ma cierpienia,
Jesli kto umiera na Wenus —
To sie w pare wodna zamienia.

I wedruja zlotawe dymy
W chaszczach zmierzchu blekitniejacych
Lub jak dobrotliwe pielgrzymy
Nawiedzaja jszcze zyjacych.
