After his two adult volumes Árpád Kollár shares a children’s book with the public in which he addresses children in a manner following classic Hungarian nursery rhymes. In this volume you can read lyrically tuned as well as nonsensical poems, from bound forms to free rhymes.
Illustrations were made by debutant Norbert Nagy.
who stole spring this year, which bird took it to the South,
and on which bird’s wing sneaked the winter back in from the North,
with icy teeth who bit the buds from the branches of bushes,
on which loft did he hid the snowdrop, the daffodil,
and where should we hide from winter, when we’ve changed our coats,
put the caps in drawers, lost our scarves long ago,
which northern bird brought this late snow back on us,
who will warm us when dad is already on a long trip away.
