A Green Lowland of Pianos Op. 45 no. 2

A Green Lowland of Pianos

in the evening
as far as the eye can see
herds
of black pianos
up to their knees
in the mire
they listen to the frogs
they gurgle in water
with chords of rapture
they are entranced
by froggish, moonish spontaneity
after the vacation
they cause scandals
in a concert hall
during the artistic milking
suddenly they lie down
like cows
looking with indifference
at the white flowers
of the audience
at the gesticulating
of the ushers
Text: Jerzy Harsymowicz (1933-1999), trans. Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004)
