The mountain: Góra

The mountain sat upon the plain
In his eternal chair,
His observation omnifold,
His inquest everywhere.

 

The seasons prayed around his knees,
Like children round a sire:
Grandfather of the days is he,
Of dawn the ancestor.

 

*****

 

Górski masyw siadł na równinie
Siedzisku jego wiecznym,
Wszechstronna jego konstatacja,
Wszędzie jego dochodzenie.

 

Pory roku modliły się u jego kolan,
Jak dzieci wkole ojca:
Dniom pradziadem jest on,
Przodkiem wschodu słońca.
