Best Poem of Wieslaw Musialowski

*** (Love Me While We're Here...)

Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 8/22/2018

Love me while we're here,
love, because there's so much
love in us, and fragrance of wild lilacs
before the time of flowers will pass

and we'll be gone too
and there will be such a time,
and there will be crying and pain,
but we know well, me and you,

that in this world
there's nothing eternal,
that so it must be
- we'll die to live
And don't be surprised why

Translated by Jarek Zawadzki

Sit down Grandpa and turn on the hearing aid
The government once gave you with a badge
Appreciate the effort they have made,
And have no backwash thoughts to nag or cadge.

Now grandpa thinks he's still a little brat
Or an old wreck living in a garbage can
