Polish Poems: 8 Poems by Jan Twardowski
Here are the poems of another contemporary Polish poet, Jan Twardowski.
Jan Twardowski (1915-2006) was a Roman-Catholic priest and a poet. He was writing both for adults and for children (even my first encounter with his works was when I was 7/8 years old and I read two of his poems in my Polish textbook). He was writing both with traditional forms and with the free verse. His poems are simple (but not too simple) to be understood by a regular citizen, and that's probably the reason why he was popular among "normal" people. The most famous line from his poems is "Śpieszmy się kochać ludzi – tak szybko odchodzą" ("Let's hurry up with loving the people - they pass away so quickly"), which is the most frequently used line from a contemporary poem by media and also ordinary people.
And here you have the poems...
