Wiersz na powitanie szkoły Posted by on Aug 30, 2012 in Culture, Current News

September 1st is coming! First day of school for kids in Poland!

Here is a great poem to welcome the new school year:

Wiersz na powitanie szkoły

(Autor: Tadeusz Kubiak)

Żegnajcie, lasy zielone,

Żegnajcie rzeki błękitne.

Już wrzesień idzie przez łąki

I wrzosem liliowo kwitnie.

Już się zwołują jaskółki,

Już bocian rozkłada skrzydła,

Żurawie lecą po niebie,

Jak na dawnych malowidłach.

Żegnajcie, letnie przygody,

Czas już powracać do domu.

Złocą, czerwienią się liście

dębów, jesionów i klonów.

Witaj nam, szkoło radosna,

grająca dzwonkiem co rano!

Dzień dobry, szkoło wesoła.

Lesie i łąko, dobranoc.

Goodbye, forest green,

Goodbye blue river.

September comes through meadows

And lilac heather blooms.


Swallows are getting together

Even the stork spreads wings

Cranes are flying across the sky,

As the old paintings.


Goodbye, summer adventures

It is time to return home.

Leaves are getting gold and red

On oaks, ashes and maples.

Welcome joyful school,

Ringing the bell every morning!

Good morning, cheerful school.

Forest and meadow, goodnight.


Do następnego razu… (Till next time…)

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.
