Szenes Anikó: A leaf (Falevél in English)

Portre of Szenes Anikó

Falevél (Hungarian)

Először zöld volt,
Aztán sárga lett,
Majd borvörösre változott az arca,
Holnap barna barátcsuhába bújik
S a következő szín, az már halál.

Tátra, Biela-Voda, 1938.

A leaf (English)

At first it had been green,
Then it turned yellow,
Then its face changed to a wine-red hue,
Tomorrow it will don the brown habit of monks,
And the next colour, that's already death.
