Nash, Ogden: Vénember mindenkit zavar (Old Men in Hungarian)

Portre of Nash, Ogden
Portre of Israel Efraim

Back to the translator

Old Men (English)

People expect old men to die,
They do not really mourn old men.
Old men are different. People look
At them with eyes that wonder when…
People watch with unshocked eyes;
But the old men know when an old man dies.

Vénember mindenkit zavar (Hungarian)

Vénember mindenkit zavar.
Nem is gyászolják igazán.
Úgy néznek rá, hogy "Remélem, hamar...
Már éppen ideje... az ám!
Jó volna, ha már az idén..."
De a vének tudják, mikor megy el a vén.
