for whom beauty is every day mixed in this dose, 
properly measured, to live until death: 
and we, though a bit older - we, highlanders, 
we go straight...Read More

Guardian Angels
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 1/03/2019

Guardian angels are the dawn and the night, every day, 
They're invisible, who does not want to see;

Don't say - such a world, crazy world, 
Don't say - you'll only waste your tears, don't cry,

As the sun just starts to rise

Driving at Dusk
