Language: Polish (Polszczyzna)

Z gór, gdzie dźwigali
Strasznych krzyżów brzemię,
Widzieli z dala obiecaną ziemię.
Widzieli światło niebieskich promieni,
Ku którym w dole ciągnęło ich plemię,
A sami do tych nie wejdą przestrzeni!
Do godów życia nigdy nie zasiędą,
I nawet, nawet może zapomnieni, będą.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
