The Poems of Lilly Gellé
During her life, Lilly was an accomplished musician, playing the piano dressed in her traditional Hungarian attire, singing traditional songs from her homeland. She was also an accomplished artist and writer. These poems were written over a span of 20 years from 1940s to the 1960s and touch on life, love, magic, gods and many about her life in Hungary and the legends of this magical land. Some poems have been translated from their original Hungarian. The collection has been edited and compiled by me.
5 Star Review!
Beautiful poetry but also intriguing for its look into the life of a woman from a very different world and a different era. I also love the beauty of these poems, written more than 50 years ago by a Hungarian immigrant, being brought to life by her granddaughter.
