"What are we in the infinity of the ocean and sky?
A small baby at the breast of eternity.
Have you heard of happiness
Springing from a deep well of sorrow?
Of love, springing from pain and despondency, agony and death?"

Chanson d'Automne - Paul Verlaine

Les sanglots longs

Des violons
De l'automne

Blessent mon cœur
D'une langueur
Monotone.

Tout suffocant
Et blême, quand
Sonne l'heure,

Je me souviens
Des jours anciens
Et je pleure;

Et je m'en vais
Au vent mauvais
Qui m'emporte

Deçà, delà,
Pareil à la
Feuille morte.

We Real Cool

THE POOL PLAYERS SEVEN AT THE GOLDEN SHOVEL.

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

- Gwendolyn Brooks

Here is one of them: У меня зачесалась нога,Только мне почесать её не удалось!Где же бляха нога? Простыня вся в крови,А из жопы торчит безобразная кость!Только я закурил, вижу, блядь, за окномТрое мрачных жлобов, смачно чавкая жрутМою бедную ногу с молдавским виномНа бильярдном столе, где ебутся и срут!Я просил их отдать, ну хотя бы икру,Там вчера записал я её телефон.Самый наглый из них, ковыряясь в носу,Погрозил мне огромным ржавым гвоздём.Я к окошку подполз, и гранату швырнулНегодяям пиздец! Негодяям хана!Всё же я молодец, вот хожу без ногиВсё ебло в орденах, мной гордится страна!

...
One of the original poems from earlier days. 

Warning: Errrb had a very colorful sense of humor. I don't recall exactly what this was about and would need my dictionary to read the whole thing. (I don't trust Google for this kind of task. ;)

So, enjoy it for the bit of weird spice that it probably is.

Upojenie Jest wiatr, co nozdrza mężczyzny rozchyla;Jest taki wiatr.Jest mróz, co szczęki mężczyzny zmarmurza;Jest taki mróz.Nie jesteś dla mnie tymianek ni róża,Ani też "czuła pod miesiącem chwila" -Lecz ciemny wiatr,Lecz biały mróz.Jest deszcz, co wargi kobiety odmienia;Jest taki deszcz.Jest blask, co uda kobiety odsłania;Jest taki blask.Nie szukasz we mnie silnego ramienia,Ani ci w myśli "klejnot zaufania",Lecz słony deszcz,Lecz złoty blask.Jest skwar, co ciała kochanków spopiela;Jest taki skwar.Jest śmierć, co oczy kochanków rozszerza;Jest taka śmierć.Oto na rośnych polanach WeselaZ kości słoniowej unosi się wieżaCzysta jak skwar,Gładka jak śmierć.

- Stanislaw Grochowiak
and one in Polish, put up by Ultraviolet during that same time period.  
Unfortunate that the website relaunch broke the line formatting, but good enough.

I remember that UV tried to translate that poem to English, because she asked me to translate it for her to Spanish, and she converted that to English, verse by verse. She didn't show me the outcome.

Upojenie - Ecstasy

There's wind which flares man's nostrils;
There is such wind.
There's frost which stiffens his jaws into marble stone;
There is such frost.
To me you're neither a thyme nor a rose,
Nor "a romantic moment under the full moon" 
But the dark wind,
But the white frost.
There's rain which changes woman's lips;
There is such rain.
There's shine, which sees through her thighs;
There is such shine.
You're not looking for my strong supportive arm,
You don't even think of "the treasure of fidelity",
But of the acid rain,
But of the golden shine.
There's heat which turns lovers' bodies into dust;
There is such heat.
There's death which widens their eyes;
There is such death.
Here on the dewy lawns of Wedding
Rises the ivory tower
Sheer like the heat,
Plain like death.

- Stanislaw GrochowiakContributed by Ultraviolet on The Music Game thread
here was a translation from somewhere. It might be the only poem in Polish on the Forum, but that's not hard to improve!

I'm seeing Familia Ultraviolet this weekend. As my favourite actor in my favourite movie says "Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops."

You traded an eel for a tea. (Shallots are from the ancient city of Ascalon in Palestine, today called Ashkelon in Israel.)

I've always thought
That men stink a lot

But why the Dutch
Stink so much?
