    Regarding crediting the translator - Szymborska had her poems printed in Polish and English, there are bi-lingual books available that has been printed under her supervision.

    This poet is no more. I am looking for her poem 'Life while you wait'

    I love Szymborska's poems — however, they are a collaboration between poet and translator (s) and unless I'm missing it, you don't credit the translators.

    I actually think there is a lot of things to learn from this reading alone.
    At first it was hard to pronounce and spell WISLAWA SZYMBORSKA, but now i know how to.
    there is a lot of things to actually concenterate on in this poem, by the sides i love poem that cracks the brain open.
    the idea of this poem is the most incredible poetry writing i have ever read.
    this one is better than the other ones i have read all ready, this is in credible and brilliant.

Best Poem of Wislawa Szymborska

Under One Small Star

My apologies to chance for calling it necessity.
My apologies to necessity if I'm mistaken, after all.
Please, don't be angry, happiness, that I take you as my due.
May my dead be patient with the way my memories fade.
My apologies to time for all the world I overlook each second.
My apologies to past loves for thinking that the latest is the first.
Forgive me, distant wars, for bringing flowers home.
Forgive me, open wounds, for pricking my finger.
I apologize for my record of minuets to those who cry from the depths.
I apologize to those who wait in railway ...

In sealed box cars travel
names across the land,
and how far they will travel so,
and will they ever get out,
don't ask, I won't say, I don't know.

The name Nathan strikes fist against wall,
the name Isaac, demented, sings,
the name Sarah calls out for water for
