The Response (text written by Zbigniew Herbert)

It will be a night in deep snow
That has a power of deadening the treads
In a deep shadow which alterates
The body onto two puddles of darkness
We lie holding a breath
And even the smallest whisper of thought

If the wolves will not track us down
And a man in overcoat swaying
A quick-fire death on his chest
One should hoick up and run
On applause of dry and short volleys
To the yonder, longed-for shore

Everywhere is the same earth, teaching wisdom
Everywhere a human cries white tears, Mothers are dandling children
The Moon rises and builts for us a white house

It will be a night after difficult conciousness
This conspiration of the imagination
Have taste of bread and levity of vodka
But the choice of remaining here
Confirms every dream of palm trees

The sleep will be interrupted by three men
Tall, made of rubber and iron
They’ll check the surname, check the fear
And order to walk down on stairs
They won’t let to take anything
Despite of the guardian’s commiserative face

Everywhere is the same earth, teaching wisdom
Everywhere a human cries white tears, Mothers are dandling children
The Moon rises and builts for us a white house

Hellenic, Roman, Medieval
Indian, Elizabethan, Italian
French – perhaps preeminently
A bit of Weimar and Versaillic
That much fatherlands we carry inside us
On one back, on one earth

But the one, protected by
The number the most singular
Is here, where they’ll tread you to the ground
Or by spade, that haughtly rings
In longing, they’ll dig a deep hole
