Poem "Wisło" by Władysław Broniewski

Translation of the poem

Wisło

Piekna jestes,
rzeko Wisło,
widzę two dno,
Sprzyjająca
moim pomysłom
moim snom.

Jestem księga
otwarta
w przyszłość
twego to nurtu
potega,
Wisło.

Vistula

Beautiful are you
river Vistula
I can see your floor
favourable
for my ideas
my dreams.

I am an open
book
into the future
of your stream
power,
Vistula.

Władysław Broniewski

Translated by M. Latowska and A. Sikorski
