O mnie

Jestem jak droga polna, niczyja,  którą się mija,

Co nigdzie wiodła i wieść nie będzie, choć idzie wszędzie.

Dzieli mnie zawsze, tak jak tę drogę,

a poco jestem pojąć nie mogę, bo mnie nie trzeba!

Nie byłem nigdy sobie, czy komu,
drogą do domu –
i dobrze życzę każdej godzinie
kiedy już minie.

Where the Bee Sucks

I remember summer afternoons, walking home from school through meadows choked with thousands upon thousands of wild flowers. Every blossom seemed to vibrate with humming bumble-bees: they were everywhere.

We would catch them in jam jars and hold them captive for an hour to two while we argued about which of us had caught […]

Slow Education.

Ever more strongly, teachers are encouraged to hurry children along as quickly as possible from one level to the next, through every successive grade and every examinable hoop we can measure.
