Landor, Walter Savage: Hetvenötödik születésnapjára (On His Seventy-fifth Birthday in Hungarian)

Portre of Landor, Walter Savage
Portre of Kálnoky László

Back to the translator

On His Seventy-fifth Birthday (English)

I strove with none, for none was worth my strife;

Nature I loved, and next to Nature, Art;

I warmed both hands before the fire of Life;

It sinks, and I am ready to depart.

Hetvenötödik születésnapjára (Hungarian)

Nem vívtam, mert nem volt ellenfelem.

A természet s művészet volt szerelmem:

élet-lángnál melengettem kezem;

most, hogy lohad a láng, ideje mennem.
