Pavol Janik

1956 / Bratislava

Vivace Ma Non Soltanto Cosi

Barefoot
you leap from star to star.
And each time there's a chime
like the kiss of crystal glasses.

Thousands of your faces
skate with perseverance
on frozen ponds.

I open you
with a violin's clef
and seek the bow
whose elasticity can equal you.

Deep in you
instead of strings
I've touched tears.
