Nothing Special

nothing special
boards paint
nails paste
paper string
 
mr artist
builds a world
not from atoms
but from remnants
 
forest of arden
from umbrella
ionian sea
from parkers quink
 
just as long as
his look is wise
just as long as
his hand is sure -
 
and presto the world -
 
hooks of flowers
on needles of grass
clouds of wire
drawn out by wind

About the author:

Zbigniew Herbert (1924 – 1998) was a Polish poet, essayist, drama writer and moralist. A member of the Polish restistance movement, Home Army, during World War II, he is one of the best known and the most translated post-war Polish writers. While he was first published in the 1950s (a volume titled String of light was issued in 1956), soon after he voluntarily ceased submitting most of his works to official Polish government publications. He resumed publication in the 1980s, initially in the underground press.
