Vocal Text

The text is a Lithuanian translation by Sigitas Geda of a poem by the Polish poet Stanisław Grochowiak.

English translation:

The dazzled eye lost its speech
It was rolled on the globe 
By a little ant with slender legs

Lithuanian translation:

apstulbusi akis prarado amą
nedidelė skruzdė plonytėm kojom
rito ją per gaublį

Original Polish text: 

Głaz z osłupienia zaniemówił
Niewielka mrówka
Toczyła go po globie niciannymi łapkami
