Echo...

written by: Małgorzata Kulisiewicz

translated by: Anna Luberda-Kowal

 

A soft heart
of Gołębia Street
like a pidgeon’s heart
moved and heard
from the writers’ benches
at Planty.
A flock of birds
headed by
the White Dove
runs by in a rush
of discussion.
A cloud of scattered words
sits on the Market Square,
soon the wind will arrange them
in literary images.
Joy feeds our memories
with daily bread.
Literary “Gołębnik”* lits up
with inaudible rustle
of lively discussions.
Bajkiewicz, the poet, will once more forget to
get older.
Our Alma Mater,
Mother Nourisher to our mind and soul
breathes deeply.

Poruszone gołębie
serce
ulicy Gołębiej
słychać z ławek pisarzy
na Plantach.
Ptasia czereda
z Białą Gołębicą
na czele
przebiega w rozdyskutowanym
pędzie.
Chmura rozsypanych słów
przysiada na Rynku,
za chwilę wiatr ułoży je
w literackie miraże.
Radość chlebem powszednim
karmi nasze wspomnienia.
Literacki „Gołębnik”* ożywa
niesłyszalnym szmerem
ożywionych rozmów.
Poeta Bajkiewicz znów dziś zapomni się
zestarzeć.
Nasza Alma Mater,
Matka Karmicielka umysłu i duszy
oddycha głęboko.
