I understand this poem is very important in Poland and is recited in schools. Could members please confirm and comment.
Yes, I confirm, it is the greatest piece of poetry written in the Polish language.
Translation, to be successful, requires a master in both languages. Google for the English translation of Locomotive (Tuwim's Lokomotywa), simply amazing.
Is there a special relationship today between Poland and Lithuania still....in any way...cultural, economic, political?
Relations are mixed. Check this thread:https://polishforums.com/news/lithuanian-diplomatic-war-last-47397/
