Norwid, Cyprian Kamil: Czulosc

Portre of Norwid, Cyprian Kamil

Czulosc (Polish)

Czulosc - bywa jak pelen wojen krzyk,
I jak szemrzacych zrodel prad,
I jako wtor pogrzebny...

I jak plecionka dluga z wlosow blond,
Na ktorej wdowiec nosic zwykl
Zegarek srebrny- - -

Tenderness (English)

Tenderness can be like a battle cry,
Like the murmur of a hidden spring
And like a funeral dirge...

And like a long braid of golden strands
On which a widower hangs
His ancient silver watch - - -
