Starting from Homer
Ludwik Jerzy Kern
And considering Polish times, from Piast
People like to praise various cities
And describe different towns
Decorated in neon lights
Just like gardeners with necklaces.
They say: Paris!
They say: London!
They say: Vienna: (this from breakfast)
They say: Tokyo!
They say: Hague!
But I have enough of this talk.
In such moments I hear a voice:
“Now, you jump in, brother!”
So, I join the discussion and say:
– One moment, please, what about Nowy Sącz?
I understand that it’s easier
to praise San Francisco,
Since it’s far away,
But Nowy Sącz is so close.
That Djibouti or Aden sounds much
For me Aden
Is not a big deal
Nowy Sącz is more beautiful.
There is the Dunajec that runs straight to Rożnów,
And this town hall, looking like one
oj Nikifor’s designs,
And a pIane, which perched near
the entrance to the castle,
And this ice cream with taste
that can’t be found anywhere eIse...
Thus, dear ladies and gentlemen,
(I want to add this before I finish)
When someone jumps at me with New York,
I respond quickly with New Sącz.
