Ilona Grosz
(1881- 1909)

All of the materials, texts and images,
I have copied from an excellent site dedicated to Radnóti Miklós.

In Your Arms

I sleep in your arms,
it’s quiet.
You sleep in my arms,
it’s quiet.
I’m a child in your arms
who is silent.
You are a child in my arms
I listen.
You hold me in your arms when I’m afraid.
I hold you in my arms.
I’m not afraid.
In your arms even the great silence
of death can’t
scare me
In your arms I’ll
survive death.
It’s a dream.

Radnóti Miklós
