Williams, William Carlos: Egy költőhöz (To an Elder Poet in Hungarian)

Portre of Williams, William Carlos

To an Elder Poet (English)

To be able
and not to do it

Still as a flower

No flame,
a flower spent
with heat -

lovely flower
               hanging
in the rain

               Never!

Soberly

Whiter than day

Wait forever
shaken by the rain
                 forever!

Egy költőhöz (Hungarian)

Tudni
és nem tenni meg

Hangtalanul mint a virág

Lángja nincs
hő-emésztette
virág -

gyönyörű virág
                  alácsüng
az esőben

                  Soha!

Higgadtan

Fehérebben mint a nappal

Várj örökké
esőverte
                örökké!
