Streets of Vilnius (II)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Part two of my Vilnius street photo series taken in June 2012. (Part one is here.) The accompanying poem is by Janina Degutyte, a wonderful 20th-century Lithuanian poet

BREAD AND SALT

Through a high gate
Adorned with words and wreaths,
Through a high gate
I enter
Like a guest
A valley
Vaulted by forests,
Clouds,
The flight of wild swans…
And with lips roughened
By northern winds
I accept
The black night
And the white day
As bread and salt.
