Here I am saying a poem “Definition of Your Attraction” by János Pilinszky, (1921 – 1981) translated from the Hungarian.
I picked this poem because it is short. I have been very busy recently (you’ll read more about that on the website very soon) and I have not found time to learn a poem at all this week.
Short and simple?
Even though it is a short poem, when you know a little about Pilinszky’s life you appreciate this poem differently.
“Definition of Your Attraction”
On a fully broken-in animal’s back
a fully broken-in animal rides.
by János Pilinszky
Translated from the Hungarian by Peter Jay.
