‘T was later when the summer went

‘T was later when the summer went
Than when the cricket came,
And yet we knew that gentle clock
Meant nought but going home.

 

‘T was sooner when the cricket went
Than when the winter came,
Yet that pathetic pendulum
Keeps esoteric time.

 

*****

 

To było potem, jak lato poszło sobie
Niż kiedy przyszedł sobie świerszcz,
Ale znać było, zegar ten miły
Mówił, że nam czas do domu iść.

 

To było przedtem, jak świerszcz poszedł sobie
Niż kiedy przyszła sobie zima,
Lecz liche to wahadełko
Tajemnego czasu się trzyma.
