Original Polish version:

Czerwone maki na Monte Cassino

Czy widzisz te gruzy na szczycie?
Tam wróg twój się ukrył jak szczur.
Musicie, musicie, musicie
Za kark wziąć i strącić go z chmur.
I poszli szaleni zażarci,
I poszli zabijać i mścić,
I poszli jak zawsze uparci,
Jak zawsze za honor się bić.

Czerwone maki na Monte Cassino
Zamiast rosy piły polską krew.
Po tych makach szedł żołnierz i ginął,
Lecz od śmierci silniejszy był gniew.
Przejdą lata i wieki przeminą.
Pozostaną ślady dawnych dni
I wszystkie maki na Monte Cassino
Czerwieńsze będą, bo z polskiej wzrosną krwi.

Runęli przez ogień ,straceńcy,
niejeden z nich dostał i padł,
jak ci z Samosierry szaleńcy,
Jak ci spod Racławic sprzed lat.
Runęli impetem szalonym,
I doszli . I udał się szturm.
I sztandar swój biało czerwony
Zatknęli na gruzach wśród chmur,

Czerwone maki...

Czy widzisz ten rząd białych krzyży?
Tam Polak z honorem brał ślub.
Idź naprzód, im dalej ,im wyżej,
Tym więcej ich znajdziesz u stóp.
Ta ziemia do Polski należy,
Choć Polska daleko jest stąd,
Bo wolność krzyżami się mierzy,
Historia ten jeden ma błąd.

Czerwone maki..."

Partial English translation:

"The red poppies on Monte Cassino
Drank Polish blood instead of dew...
O'er the poppies the soldiers did go
'Mid death, and to their anger stayed true!
Years will come and ages will go,
Enshrining their strivings and their toil!...
And the poppies on Monte Cassino
Will be redder for Poles' blood in their soil."

"The Battle of Monte Cassino was a costly series of four assaults by the Allies against the Winter Line in Italy held by Axis forces during the Italian Campaign of World War II. The intention was a breakthrough to Rome...

On 16 May, soldiers from the Polish II Corps launched one of the final assaults on the German defensive position as part of a twenty-division assault along a twenty-mile front. On 18 May, a Polish flag followed by the British Union Jack were raised over the ruins. Following this Allied victory, the German Senger Line collapsed on 25 May. The German defenders were finally driven from their positions, but at a high cost. The capture of Monte Cassino resulted in 55,000 Allied casualties, with German losses being far fewer, estimated at around 20,000 killed and wounded."
