by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
Translation by Józef Paszkowski (1817 - 1861)

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks!...
Language: English 
Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!	 
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drench'd our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers [to]1 oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, all germens spill at once
That make ingrateful man!

Dmijcie, wichrzyska, aż wam miechy...
Language: Polish (Polski)  after the English 
Dmijcie, wichrzyska, aż wam miechy pękną!
Dmijcie, wściekajcie się! Plujcie powodzią 
Wy, katarakty, i wy, uragany, 
Aż zatopicie wieże po szczyt kopuł! 
Wy, siarką tchnące, jak myśl chyże błyski, 
Zwiastuny dęby druzgocących bełtów, 
Osmalcie biały mój włos! a ty, gromie 
Wszystko niszczący, spłaszcz twardy krąg świata, 
Zgnieć wszelkie kształty przyrodzenia, zniwecz 
Wszelkie zarody niewdzięcznej ludzkości!
