Jan Skácel - The dead (Mrtví)

Our dead are all the time along
Thus we can never be alone
And they come here like shadows
In their hair ash and clay of meadows
Their faces are like erased
But we're by mutual knowledge graced
After the cornflowers of last summer's spell
Their hands very faintly smell
They greet me quietly like their own
A hunchback whom the presence has shown
(you can visit
for more insane stuff
for more translations ...)
