  • English translation of first line: and when they make the dress for your coffin
  • The poem addresses a dead woman, describing her funeral, presenting it as though the woman was the agent of what was happening ('całunem twarz zasłonisz/i karawanem po światłość wiekuistą/wyruszysz' [you will cover your face with a shroud/and in a procession set off into eternal life]).
