Friendship

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

 

Mr. HorseRadish, the mouse, works on his boat,
Cuts some reeds, some stuff he loads.
The wind blew across the roof,
The stalks flying off the woof.
 
A pelican comes along,
Ties reeds with a pair of tongs,
Helping  the mouse Mr. HorseRadish.
Casually he grabs a fish.
 
The reeds now make a loud noise,
The strong wind blows and annoys.
The mouse hurries, wants to try
From pelicanls pouch, fish to fry.
