Syndic No.40 ~ Danuta Bartosz

To Go Ahead

Written by Danuta Bartosz

Translated from Polish by the poet

Narrated by Bill Wolak


To untie the ropes

to pull the anchor

to leave the harbor of stagnation


To catch the wind in the sails

to wander to dream to discover

what is still undiscovered


To be amazed by what we haven’t been amazed by

To memorize what still hasn’t happened


To check why without you the world

isn’t music

the branches of the tree are humming

the same way


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.
