Here you will find the Poem Polish Flowers of poet Julian Tuwim

Polish Flowers

A box with paints from childhood's time: 
The colors of town are earth and grime. 
An old worker at a dark doorway squats, 
The spuds in his bowl are powdery dry. 
It's a face of yellowish and gray spots 
In the midst of hunger, cold, dirt and slime.
