Flying Goose

A poem by Mediana Stan, illustrated by Szitai Gy├Ârgy-Ferenc, translated by Rafael Manory

 

Marcus senior comes on the track,
Marcus junior stays on his back;
Lowers the little one to dwell
Between the lillies and the blue bell.

Throws and catches him, like fluff,
The skies are not big enough.
Catches and throws him like a ball,
Marcus senior is at-call!

Marcus junior with the goose flies
High up in the springtime skies!
