Landor, Walter Savage: Finis (Finis in Hungarian)

Portre of Landor, Walter Savage
Portre of Kálnoky László

Back to the translator

Finis (English)

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

Nature I loved and, next to Nature, Art:        

I warm'd both hands before the fire of life;

It sinks, and I am ready to depart.

Finis (Hungarian)

Nem vívtam, mert nem volt ellenfelem.

A Természet s Művészet volt szerelmem:

élet-lángnál melengettem kezem;

most, hogy lohad a láng, ideje mennem.
