Illyés Gyula: Under November skies (Novemberi ég alatt in English)

Portre of Illyés Gyula

Novemberi ég alatt (Hungarian)

Rémülten egymás

Kezét keresve

Egymásba bukva

Futnak a hajszolt

Felhők — —



Ki mondja mitől

Kellene jaj futnom

Ha egyedűl is


Szálló könnyekkel

Sírja színét és

Tavaszi kedvét

S ég felé ijedten

Kapkod a cserfa.

Under November skies (English)

Panicked and searching

For hands to hold and

Knocking each other

Hard-driven clouds are

Racing --


                                 -- alas


Who might just tell me

From what to run away

When I'm quite alone


With floating teardrops

Weeping for colour

And cheer of springtime

A frightened turkey-oak’s

Grabbing for the sky.
