Stary konkwistador

Старый конквистадор

Zapuszczając się w obcych gór twory,
Konkwistador zagubił się stary,
W dymnym niebie pławiły kondory,
Śnieżne czapy nad głową wisiały.

Osiem dni przyszło wieść głodne życie,
Konik zdechł, lecz pod wielkim wykuszem
Odkrył w miarę przytulne ukrycie,
By przy sobie wciąż mieć drogą tuszę.

Spędzał dnie przy uschniętym figowcu,
W pieśniach sławił słoneczną Kastylię,
We wspomnieniach znów był na żaglowcu,
Widział muszkiet, a czasem mantylę.

Arogancki był wciąż i spokojny,
Nie znał strachu, nie żywił też złości,
Przyszła śmierć i wojownik dostojny
Pozwał ją, by zgrała z nim w kości.

The Word

Long ago, when the world unfolded, / As Almighty God would drop His face, / With the word the burning sun was halted / And the cities would be laid to waste. / / And the eagle would be stopped from flying, / And the stars clung to the moon in fright, / If abruptly, like a scarle...

The Sixth Sense

How pleased we are by the entrancing wine / And by the bread that’s waiting in the oven, / And by the woman who can pacify / Our agonies in the delights of loving. / / But with the sunset’s color of a rose / Above the cool horizon of the sky - / What do we do with th...

The Giraffe

Today, I see, your gaze is particularly forlorn, / And your hands particularly thin, embracing your knees. / Listen: far away, far away, on Lake Chad, / A refined giraffe is roaming. / / His proportions are harmonious and his legs are long, / And a bewitching pattern adorns his ski...

Magic Violin

Darling boy, You are so merry, your smile is bright and clean, / Don't ask for this perfect happiness, poison for all our worlds... / You don't know, You don't know what defines this polish violin, / What secret horror hides in these initial accords. / / A someone who takes her body i...
