From a writer whom Charles Simic calls "one of the finest poets living" comes a collection of witty, compassionate, contemplative, and always surprising poems. Szymborska writes with verve about everything from love unremembered to keys mislaid in the grass. The poems will appear, for the first time, side by side with the Polish originals, in a book to delight new and old readers alike.
a bumptious, stuck-up word.
It should be written in quotes.
It pretends to miss nothing,
to gather, hold, contain, and have.
While all the while it's just
a shred of a gale.

"In this collection of contemplative, witty, and always surprising poems, Wislawa Szymborska writes with verve about everything from love unremembered to keys mislaid in the grass, from small-scale naughtiness to the happiness of skating on thin ice, from the district firemen's ball to the cosmos."--BOOK JACKET.
