The revolt of the tongue — Marlena Yurukowa PlovdivLit

Marlena Yurukowa in PlovdivLit


The revolt of the tongue  4.84 / 5
(to emigrant children)

In the foreign world of the foreign country,

the smart child understands everything,

but the tongue does not obey.

The child's mind avidly absorbs everything

but the sinking heart makes throat shrink

and hardly let foreign words pass.

The tongue does not bend,

the child's tongue revolts.
