Nothing Special

nothing special

boards paint

nails paste

paper string

mr artist

builds a world

not from atoms

but from remnants

forest of arden

from umbrella

ionian sea

from parkers quink

just as long as

his look is wise

just as long as

his hand is sure -

and presto the world -

hooks of flowers

on needles of grass

clouds of wire

drawn out by the wind


Zbigniew Herbert

Note: The artwork is a Study for the Head of "Poetry" (1895 - 1899) for the composition "The Apotheosis of Bavaria" by Nikolaos Gyzis.
