Translated by Artur Komoter

Whirling memories,
going to winter sleep.
Paved leaves
the grass still green.

Pity that on the surface
can only be seen
swinging branches,
chilled and awaiting –
for the rays of life.

Rays –
to the land of awakening:
fields of grain,
smell of meadows
and in the Summer Dream
of memorised faces.

And in the summer?
Awakened by the May sun
old oaks and birches,
– like every day –
will be able to look at themselves
in the Green Pond.
