[in english] My song (II).

Autorem wiersza jest Cyprian Kamil Norwid

For that land where a scrap of bread is picked up
From the ground out of reverence
For Heaven`s gifts...
     I am homesick, Lord!...

For the land where it`s a great travesty
To harm a stork`s nest in a pear tree,
For storks serve us all...
     I am homesick, Lord!...

For the land where we greet each other
In the ancient Christian custom:
"May Christ`s name be praised!"
     I am homesick, Lord!...

I long still for yet another thing, likewise innocent,
For I no longer know where to find
My abode...
     I am homesick, Lord!

For worrying-not and thinking-not,
For those whose yes means yes --- and no means no ---
Without shades of grey...
     I am homesick, Lord!

I long for that distant place, where someone cares for me!
It must be thus, though my friendship
Will never come to pass!...
     I am homesick, Lord!
