Polish Poetry



You are like the sunbeam
On the frozen earth.
You are like strong roots
For the weak plants.

You are for the most poor
Like a piece of bread,
Like for the stars - moon
For the earth - the peace of heaven.

You are like the stream
For the very dry field,
Like a plaintive song
For the soul of the mountaineer.

You are everything, Mary,
For us under the mountains
And we need nothing more
As You are with us!!!
