Zbigniew Herbert 1960


I read again these two slender books over the 4 of July
fest when we could detect from the woods where
we spent two nights by camp fire preparing delicious
simple meals what sounded like mortar fire from two
outlying towns ten miles away, a strong bright
lamp allowed all the reading we wanted late into
the night after dishes with these two strong minds
on the subjects of books, other writers, travel into
foreign lands, and mosing around art, architecture,
wars and recovery.
