STEPS by Eszter Forrai
translated from the Hungarian and edited by Thomas Ország-Land (July 2011)
Eszter Forrai (b. 1938) is a Jewish-Hungarian poet and painter who lives in Paris.
Mistletoe glowing white like marbles,
bunched with tiny leaves.
Streets festooned with mistletoe.
The sight of graceful pinetrees.
I leave a grieving daughter’s bouquet
upon an unknown grave.
