A BOOK: KSIĘGA JAKA

He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book. What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!

*****

Posilił się cennymi słowami,
Duch jego w krzepę wzrósł;
Nie odczuwał już, że był biedakiem,
A ciało marny proch.
Przetańczył dni które miał za podłe,
Natomiast skrzydeł sumpt
Miał tylko z książki. Jakąż swobodę
Bez pęt, przynosi duch!
