[english] Leave Us Alone

Autorem wiersza jest Tadeusz Różewicz

Forget about us
about our generation
live like human beings
forget about us

we envied
plants and stones
we envied dogs

I would like to be a rat
I used to say to her

I would like not to be
I would like to fall asleep
and wake up after the war
she would say with her eyes shut

forget about us
don`t ask about our youth
leave us alone

trans. by Czeslaw Milosz
