I never saw a moor

I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.

 

I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.

 

*****

 

Wrzosowiska nie widziałam,
Morza nie dojrzałam nigdy;
Ale znam, co wrzosowina
I czym fala musi być.

 

Nie mówiłam nigdy z Bogiem,
Ni niebo zwiedzałam;
Ale ową znam miejscowość
Jakbym mapę miała.
