Richard Wilbur z cyklu * Przeciwieństwa * / from * Opposites * (#32)


z cyklu  * Przeciwieństwa *


Co jest przeciwieństwem księcia?

Żaba, ofiara zaklęcia

z takiej bajki starej wiedźmy,

która mówi, księcia weźmy

i na pstryk w żabę przemieńmy,

skórę na zieloną zmieńmy,

siedzi teraz nagi, smętny

na liściu, a wszem odmęty.

from  * Opposites *


What is the opposite of prince? 

A frog must be the answer, since, 

As all good fairy stories tell, 

When some witch says a magic spell, 

Causing the prince to be disguised 

So that he won’t be recognized,

He always ends up green and sad

And sitting on a lily pad.
