Masters, Edgar Lee: A Spoon River-i holtak - Amanda Barker (Spoon River Anthology - Amanda Barker in Hungarian)

Portre of Masters, Edgar Lee

Spoon River Anthology - Amanda Barker (English)

Henry got me with child,

Knowing that I could not bring forth life

Without losing my own.

In my youth therefore I entered the portals of dust.

Traveler, it is believed in the village where I lived

That Henry loved me with a husband's love

But I proclaim from the dust

That he slew me to gratify his hatred.

A Spoon River-i holtak - Amanda Barker (Hungarian)

Henry gyereket csinált nekem,

Tudván képtelen leszek életet adni

Csak a sajátom árán.

Fiatalon így mentem át a por kapuján.

Halld utazó, a községben ahol éltem azt hitték

Henry úgy szeret, ahogy férj az asszonyát

De innen a porból hirdetem

Kéjjel ringatott és közben utált.
