Winter is here! Posted by on Dec 29, 2016 in Phrases, Vocabulary

Winter is here and it’s definitely a better one than last year! We are having a big snowstorm as I’m writing! I love fresh, beautiful snow. So why not a poem about winter then?

 

ZIMA

WINTER

Author: Słoński

Stanęła zima między nami…

Na ścianach borów, wstęgach rzek,

nieprzebytemi legł zaspami

niepokalanie biały śnieg.

Winter stood between s …

In the walls of forests, ribbons of rivers,

With impassable snowdrifts

immaculately white snow fell.

Patrzymy w mroźną dal oboje,

co jak rozwarty stoi grób…

W rozwartym grobie serce moje

pod śniegiem leży u twych stóp.

We both look at the cold distance,

that looks like an open grave …

In the open grave, my heart

under the snow lies at your feet.

Chciałaś rozkopać śnieg rękami?

Doprawdy szkoda twoich rąk!

Stanęła zima między nami

zasłała biały całun wkrąg.

You wanted to dig snow with your hands?

I really pity your hands!

Winter stood between us

put the white shroud around.

Palą się na mych ustach jeszcze

twych purpurowych ust płomienic,

choć zima kładzie mi na twarzy

swoje śmiertelnic białe tchnienie.

My lips still burn

with your purple lips’ fire

although winter puts on my face

it’s white killing breath .

Palą się na mych ustach jeszcze

twe wonne usta słodkim grzechem,

choć zima stoi między nami

i straszy mroźnym swym oddechem.

My lips still burn

your fragrant mouth with sweet sin,

although winter is between us

and hunts us with its frosty breath.

I patrz — stopniały białe śniegi,

wezbrały rzeki, pękły lody

i z wysokiego nieba słońce

już na weselne woła gody.

Look – white snow has melted

rivers overflowed, ice broke

and with the high heaven sun

Already calling for the wedding festivities.
