The Sea And The Man - Poem by Anna Swirszczynska
You will not tame this sea
either by humility or rapture.
But you can laugh
in its face.
was invented by those
who live briefly
as a burst of laughter.
The eternal sea
will never learn to laugh.
Translated from the Polish by Czeslaw Milosz and Leonard Nathan
