Szymborska: let them never, never/ forget this day

20 Jan

green room

from “Commemoration”

They both knelt down on the lakeshore,

they combed the dry leaves from their hair;

small fish, a star’s converging rays,

swam up to stare.

Swallow’s heart, have

mercy on them.

Reflected in the rippling lake,

trees trembled, nebulous and gray;

o swallow, let them never, never

forget this day.
