The poems were carefully selected by the author and the translators to capture the unique quality and great range of Elzbieta Cichla-Czarniawska's poetry. Her voice is both original and powerful. Her poems touch upon every aspect of human experience. Some are philosophical and universal, exploring our place in the world. Some are deeply emotional, talking about love, loneliness, fear of getting old and dying. Whatever the theme, her poems move and astonish the reader.
