Joyce, James: Chamber Music XIV

Portre of Joyce, James

Chamber Music XIV (English)

My dove, my beautiful one,

Arise, arise!

The nightdew lies

Upon my lips and eyes.

 

The odorous winds are weaving

A music of sighs:

Arise, arise,

My dove, my beautiful one!

 

I wait by the cedar tree,

My sister, my love.

White breast of the dove,

My breast shall be your bed.

 

The pale dew lies

Like a veil on my head.

My fair one, my fair dove,

Arise, arise!

Kamarazene XIV (Hungarian)

Gerlém, gyönyörűségem,

Pihegve szállj !

Csilló homály

Alatt a szem s a száj.

 

Jószagu szellő dalt sodor,

Sóhajt a táj:

Pihegve szállj,

Gerlém, gyönyörűségem!

 

A cédrusfánál, húgom,

Szivem szerelme,

Hókeblű gerle,

Ma keblem az ágyad.

 

Sáppadt homály

Sző fejemre fátylat.

Szivem szép szerelme,

Pihegve szállj!
