Two Poems by Pawel Markiewicz

The Spring Awakening

( A sonnet)



The springtide wakes up not only in dreams.

The snowdrops blooming in the moony garths.

One listens to propitious paradise.

The dearest graylag geese coming in flocks.


I think of genus Primula from afar.

The wild boar piglets were born in a grove.

I feel springwards the warmness of a soul.

Native dreameries are fulfilled galore.



Springtide be primeval home of Naiads!

I taste the verdure of some climes.

You are dreamy like fairylike bouts.

The friends of springy  morn – are tender owls.

I can praise, bewitch Ovidianly.

Thus, I am able to enchant peaceably.

Greek dreamiest stories

Sonnet of Dreams

Heavenly sailorling spy out the wan light-sheen of star.

Baffling unearthly time: weird having just thieved by elves.

One of pale mornings longs for some meek fulfillment of night.

Moony and nostalgic chums – comets are upon the skies.

Lonely dreamery – lying just blink-sea, weird above.

Endless nostalgia is being of pang. Hades is fay.

Heavenly moony lure, beings seem dark, Ethics fly off!

Poignant decease has become drab black, comet has picked rain.

The glow, which is deathless, at length in the sadness full bane.

Grim Reaper loves more than You dream – a bit lights of the worms.

Marvel of starlit night: I have found a little of my name.

Starry night – dreamy glow are only in the tender souls.



Sensing the moonlet, demise of cool-blue song will be free.

Your worm bawls after all certainly. Death blubbing like me.
