Music of the Word

written by: Eliza Segiet

translated by: Artur Komoter

 

Beautiful is the world
painted with the music of the word.
Like
a butterfly passing by,
who for a moment
intoxicates with the colouring of its body,
stopping
the breath of those thirsty for beauty.
Its sensual dance
is freedom of imagination.

And the word?
The word can be
the music
that can be heard
when it is quiet,
and yet silent.

 

Muzyka słowa

 

Piękny jest świat
rozmalowany muzyką słowa.
Jak
przelatujący motyl,
który przez chwilę
upaja kolorytem swego ciała,
zatrzymując
oddech spragnionych piękna.
Jego zmysłowy taniec
to wolność wyobraźni.

A słowo?
Słowo, może być
muzyką,
którą słychać
kiedy jest już ciszą,
a jeszcze milczeniem.
