Can anyone give me the jest of what this handwritten document is? if it is a song/poem I'd like to know if it a known song or if it appears to be an attempt at an writing an original.

It is one of a few versions of a popular folk song. The most known one starts with Pragną oczka pragną. You can google it and find on youtube, too.

interesting that you should make such an observation/comment; but, yes it did.......I have very fond memories of my family singing a great deal at our get togethers but the song that really "nails" me is Upływa szybko życie which was song by my aunts/uncles at the end of every party; even as i write this i get emotional listening to youtube.com/watch?v=65RsH0kjocM

however, the song that brought me to my knees was: as I approached Jasna Gora a few years back and I could hear one of the vendors playing Barka of which this has become my favorite rendition (video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?ei=UTF-8&hsimp=yhs-att_001&hspart=att&p=barka+utube#id=1&vid=4bdc94539c04fa1613f64b33bc370999&action=click

take care, and thanks
