Stachura, Edward: In contemplating aluminum… (W kontemplacji aluminium... in English)

Portre of Stachura, Edward

Back to the translator

W kontemplacji aluminium... (Polish)

W kontemplacji aluminium
miesci sie rowniez skandynawski ogrod Hesperyd
i dachy powolne lsniacym salamandrom
ktore deszcz namaszcza
wonna przyneta na nozdrza
a mozliwe ze na stopy lunatykow
Wspomnialem ogrody
bo moga nie wierzyc sceptycy
w pozne powracanie okazalosci jesiennej
i dzbany pelne ociekajaca smukloscia
na karki wysoko pokornych kobiet
a mozliwe ze na stopy lunatykow

In contemplating aluminum… (English)

In contemplating aluminum
there is also the Scandinavian garden of Hesperides
and slow roofs like glossy salamanders
which the rain anoints
with sweet lure for nostrils
and maybe for the feet of the lunatics
I mentioned the gardens
for skeptics may not believe
in late return of autumn bounty
and full jars dripping slenderness
on the necks of haughty humble women
and maybe on the feet of the lunatics
