    but one also likes chicken soup with noodles,
    one likes compliments and the color blue,

    one likes having the upper hand, ...

    My first reading of a Wislawa Szymborska poem, not my last. Thanks be to Regina Grol for translation.I am sadden to learn of her passing just for months ago.Time is timeless when it comes to poetry.The torch that Wislawa ignited, passed through Regina's fingers, to my page, proves it.

    Nice. Very nice. Actually so straight the realisation, naturally the expression becomes much lucid. And it is the beauty of this writing............Regards, Pranab k c (Report) Reply
