Best Poem of Pavol Janik

VIVACE MA NON SOLTANTO COSI

Barefoot
you leap from star to star.
And each time there's a chime
like the kiss of crystal glasses.
Thousands of your faces
skate with perseverance
on frozen ponds.
I open you with a violin's clef
and seek the bow
whose elasticity can equal you.
Deep in you
instead of strings
I've touched tears.

(1981)

Read the full of VIVACE MA NON SOLTANTO COSI

Summer

The sun smashes our windows.
An urgent song reaches us from the street.
On the cellophane sky
steam condenses.
Unconfirmed reports are reproduced
about the wind.
The trees are the first to begin to talk
about the two of us.

(1981)
