“Weather” by Zbigniew Herbert


In the sky’s envelope there is a letter for us. A vast stretch of air in wide orange and white strips. The gentle giant goes in front of us: he is rocking back and forth. He carries a shining ball attached to a thick club.

Zbigniew Herbert (translated by Czesław Miłosz)
—from The Collected Poems: 1956–1998
