Attila József : A Simple Poem

When everything gets dark and the sky splits in purple around us,
I would like to see your eyes.
When I see you, I’m only looking into your eyes and I wish to kiss
your hands bravely.
I’d like to kiss them, and when I am there, next to you, I know that
I won’t kiss your hands…

Benyamin Bensalah

Translated from the Hungarian poem of Attila József, “EGYSZERŰ VERS” (1922).
