APRIL PROMPTS: A Poem in Polish


Write a poem in a language in which you are not fluent,

or don’t even speak

W Warszawa, róże.

Wiosna, móje serce chce

pójść do parku słuchać

walców Chopina,

czy może chodzić

słuchu w Ostrowy kawki.

In Warsaw, roses.

In Spring, my heart wants

to go to the park

to hear the walzes of Chopin

or maybe to walk

hearing jackdaws in Ostrowy. 

Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to send this to my cousin to see what it really says!
