Beckett, Samuel: A keselyű (The Vulture in Hungarian)

Portre of Beckett, Samuel
Portre of Tandori Dezső

Back to the translator

The Vulture (English)

dragging his hinger through the sky

of my skull shell of sky and earth


strooping to the prone who must

soon take up their life and walk


mocked by a tissue that may not serve

till hunger earth and sky be offal

A keselyű (Hungarian)

hurcolja éhségét az égen

ég-földkagyló koponyám egén


húnyókra csap igen hamar

pattan mind hordja az életét


csúfolja rend mely szart se ér

míg éh föld ég nem dögcafat
