Polish Poetry



Twelve sat there
around the simple table
without decorative napkins
or a china dinner set
the aroma of broken bread
filled their nostrils
the wine in the tumblers
was like blood - red, clear
and He washed their feet
full of great love
which could not fit
in the narrow room
-- only the crickets behind the window
became silent in amazement
that it is so simple.

Krystyna Zajac
