Szymborska, Wisława: Vermeer (Vermeer in English)

Portre of Szymborska, Wisława

Vermeer (Polish)

Dopóki ta kobieta z Rijksmuseum

w namalowanej ciszy i skupieniu

mleko z dzbanka do miski

dzień po dniu przelewa,

nie zasługuje Świat

na koniec świata.

Vermeer (English)

So long as that woman from the Rijksmuseum

in painted quiet and concentration

keeps pouring milk day after day

from the pitcher to the bowl

the World hasn’t earned

the world’s end.
