Mr. Snail's Secret

A poem by Mediana Stan, illustrated by Szitai György-Ferenc, translated by Rafael Manory

Mr. Snail is an astronomer,
He c’imbs the ladder up the tree
And through lenses he will see
Shiny star Aldebaran.
"Oh, golden star, bull's eye
You are falling from the sky
On the lawn, onto the dew.
If only everybody knew...''

In an apple tree nearby,
Mr. Jewel, the worm was laying by
Secretly talking to Mr. HorseRaddish,
The distinguished mouse.
They could hear Mr. Snail talking to the star!
They now share a secret story,
Mr. Snail is a poet bound for glory!
