Blake, William: Vízpartra heveredtem én (I laid me down upon a bank in Hungarian)

Portre of Blake, William
Portre of Répás Norbert

Back to the translator

I laid me down upon a bank (English)

I laid me down upon a bank
Where love lay sleeping
I heard among the rushes dank
Weeping Weeping

Then I went to the heath & the wild
To the thistles & thorns of the waste
And they told me how they were beguild
Driven out & compeld to be chaste

Vízpartra heveredtem én (Hungarian)

Vízpartra heveredtem én
Hol érosz szundikált
Zsombékból neszeltem meg én
Hogy könny és bú szitált.

Aztán vadon lett rejtekem
Ugaron bogáncsok, tüskék
Sorsuk regélték el nekem
Gúzsba őket hogyan fűzték.
