Ja ci zatańczę pośród słów i motyli
(Eng. I will dance for you among words and among butterflies)

kochanie
ja ci zatańczę
pośród słów i motyli
ja pozbieram z osowiałych drzew błyski
i asfalt posrebrzony księżycem
i deszczem
w ręce
jak dziecinną zabawkę do ust

---
darling
I will dance for you
among words and among butterflies
I will pick glints from sad trees
and tarmac silvered by the moon
and by the rain
into my hands
like a child's toy raised to mouth
