A poem by Mediana Stan, illustrated by Faluvégi Zsolt, translated by Rafael Manory


Her inkbottle has been smashed,
Her schoolbag needs to be washed,
There are green stains on her wings,
And on her cheeks, but she sings:

- I'm a predator with crown,
The oak tree I shall throw down
'cause I have no ink, no crayon,
Tree-beetles”” I'm one in a million!

Then they opened the schoolbag
Their crayons out they drag:
Dark-green, ember-red, light blue
Black and nectar-yellow, too.
