Best Poem of Wieslaw Musialowski

A Butterfly Pinned Down

Translated by Jarek Zawadzki

How beautiful you are, oh butterfly,
But sadly from the display case you stare,
Stone-dead in a pose on a wing of an August day,
When you would rather hover in the air.

No wind now, lightly blowing, that may come
Will ever make you rise from non-existence
Or carry you as if a speck of dust
So that you savor altitude and distance.

No sunny ray will ever touch your wings,
The wings that sleep so widely open now.
You're like a sunless rainbow that upon
A pitch-black cloud has been bedimmed somehow.

No elm ...

Amnesty

Translated by Jarek Zawadzki

So many rhymes upon the festive tables,
Of metaphor: about big funerals,
About the toil of flails, henhouses, stables,
Inquiries, jails within some pigsty walls,
In those amnesic times.

So much drab fate onto a paper sheet
