      Cyprian Kamil NorwidMy Little Song (II)tłum. Jarek Zawadzki

      1

      For the country dear where but a crumb of bread

      Up from the ground with reverence we heave,

      Adoring thus the Boon by Heaven spread…

      O Lord I grieve…

      5

      And for the land where storks nests to destroy

      As a serious misdeed we do perceive,

      For they provide us all with mirth and joy…

      O Lord I grieve…

      And for the country where each greeting nod

      10

      Is dear to Him in whom we do believe,

      For meeting friends we say: «Praise be to God»…

      O Lord I grieve…

      But there is also something else I miss,

      That's something different, equally naive;

      15

      Though I have no idea where that is…

      O Lord I grieve…

      And for the griefless time of thoughtlessness,

      For those who never fancy to deceive,

      And take each no for no and yes for yes…

      20

      O Lord I grieve…

      And now who cares for me and for my woe

      That even time so long may not relieve?

      Not for my friendship, but it must be so…

      O Lord I grieve…[1]

      Przypisy

      [1]

      The original has: „I tak być musi, choć się tak nie stanie/Przyjaźni mojéj”. The relation of the „friendship” to the rest of the stanza is equally unclear as in this my rendering of it. [przypis redakcyjny]
