ZŁA ZIMA by Maria Konopnicka Posted by on Nov 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

Winter is here (at least in New Hampshire)! We have some snow, cold days and getting ready for skiing and all snowy fun activities. For this reason I have a snowy poem by maria Konopnicka:)


Hu! Hu! Ha! Nasza zima zła! 

Szczypie w nosy, szczypie w uszy 

Mroźnym śniegiem w oczy prószy, 

Wichrem w polu gna! 

Nasza zima zła! 

Hu! Hu! Ha! Nasza zima zła! 

Płachta na niej długa, biała, 

W ręku gałąź oszroniała, 

A na plecach drwa… 

Nasza zima zła! 

Hu! Hu! Ha! Nasza zima zła! 

A my jej się nie boimy, 

Dalej śnieżkiem w plecy zimy, 

Niech pamiątkę ma! 

Nasza zima zła!

Bad winter

Hu! Hu! Ha! Our bad winter!

Tweaks the noses, ears tweaks

Frosty snow in the eyes sprinkles,

The wind in the rushes!

Our bad winter!

Hu! Hu! Ha! Our bad winter!

She has long, white cape,

In her hand white frosty branch,

And on her back firewood…

Our bad winter!

Hu! Hu! Ha! Our bad winter!

And we are not afraid of her,

We throw snowball in the back of winter,

So she has a souvenir!

Our bad winter!


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.
