IN A DREAM


(WE ŚNIE)


In a dream you are the only mine,
As there for you I am the first.
We talk about flowers and rhymes,
Earthly dogs and heavenly birds.

There are meadows in the sun,
Not from that world golden calm
And kisses that are all of the green.

And you are a princess of mine,
Owllike sage and sweetness divine
And I am all of the sunbeam.

1946
