"...the water does not look behind
It flees, runs farther away
Where eyes will not see her,
the water wanders..."

Bronisława Wajs (Papusza)

"Oh, how beautifully the forest rustles for us-
sings me songs.
How beautifully the rivers flow,
they fill my heart with joy.
How delightful to behold the water deep
and to tell her everything.
Because no one can understand me,
only the forests and streams.
What I'm telling here it has all long passed
and took everything, everything with it-
and my younger years.'

Papusza

Hallo Fredy,

Herzlich Willkommen hier in der Gruppe! Nach den Sommerferien, werden wir anfangen Besprechungen von Büchern und Filmen zu publizieren. Es wäre auch gut einen Tab zu machen, wo man genau solche Fragen und Antworten findest wie Du jetzt stellst/brauchst!

Bis bald und viele Grüsse,

Els
