Une poésie polonaise en traduction:


Par Halina Poswiatowska


toutes les fois que je veux vivre je crie

quand la vie me quitte

je me colle à elle

je lui dis - vie

ne t\'en va pas encore


sa main chaude dans la mienne

mes lèvres à son oreille

je chuchote



vie

- comme si la vie était quelqu\'un qu\'on aime

et qui veut partir -


je me pends à son cou

je crie


je mourrai si tu pars


Traduction par Isabelle Malor-Filarsca

franceweb.fr/poesie/halina.htm

***


zawsze kiedy chcê ¿yæ krzyczê

gdy ¿ycie odchodzi ode mnie

przywieram do niego

mówiê - ¿ycie

nie odchod¼ jeszcze


jego ciep³a rêka w mojej rêce

moje usta przy jego uchu

szepczê


¿ycie

- jak gdyby ¿ycie by³o kochankiem

który chce odej¶æ -


wieszam mu siê na szyi

krzyczê


umrê je¶li odejdziesz


***


The effect in Polish is reinforced by the personal and possessive pronouns relating to \"life\" which are identical to masculine forms (otherwise \"life\" is neuter), unlike the French \"à elle\" (lui, sa, son are luckily sufficiently ambiguous in French to cover both genders).
