The Light of the Lighthouse

Written by Danuta Bartosz

Translated from Polish by the poet

Narrated by Bill Wolak


Will I manage

to darn the wounds

of fragile time


Will dew on the dune

of the Baltic Sea

bring freshness back

to broken grass once again


Defer the cruise

of the last glance


Waves of hope

high tides

low tides


For the light of the lighthouse

is nothing

when the ship

has already sunk


Danuta Bartosz was born in Kiev and graduated from the University of Poznań with a degree in Law. Poet, journalist, and publisher of 11 bilingual anthologies, she is Honorary President of the Greater Poland Branch of the Polish Writers’ Union.
