A SPELL written by Małgorzata Kulisiewicz at Spillwords.com

You are holding me firmly in your arms,

the whisper of your palms

is blooming.


Waltzing in current

we are performing our life

On Blue Danube


The background around us

is wearing off on our wet lips

an angel has touched us.


Its feather is spinning

all lost in the dance will fall

in the Danube


before the old Europe perishes

Let the revived waltz

On Blue Danube

be here forever.




Trzymasz mnie mocno w ramionach,

szept twoich dłoni



Niesieni wirem na trzy pas

tańczymy życie

„Nad pięknym modrym Dunajem”.


Zaciera się tło wokół nas,

na wilgotnych wargach

czujemy muśnięcie anioła.


Wiruje piórko

zgubione w tańcu,

opadnie w fale Dunaju,

zanim umrze stara Europa.


Wskrzeszony wiedeński walc

„An der schönen blauen Donau”

niech zawsze trwa.
