Tytuł: Need some help (English fragments)
Wiadomość wysłana przez: lukasz w Maj 04, 2012, 01:14:18 pm
Hello everyone.

Does anyone have Mortal Engines in English ? It is impossible to get it in Poland in English, that's why I'm asking you guys to help me. I need the four-line poem in English from the very beginning of the story "Sanatorium of Dr. Vliperdius" which is printed in English Mortal Engines (In Polish it's in some editions of Star Diaries though). I need it for my article concerning literary translations. I'd appreciate your help.

The robotess goes
To the well with her jug,
A dashing young robot
Now holds out his plug;
With a blush she replies
To his offer so bold,
And gives from her basket
a pretty pentode.
