Burns, Robert: Könyvmolyokhoz (To the book-worms in Hungarian)

Portre of Burns, Robert
Portre of Répás Norbert

Back to the translator

To the book-worms (English)

Through and through th’ inspir’d leaves,
Ye maggots, make your windings;
But O respect his lordship’s taste,
And spare his golden bindings.

Könyvmolyokhoz (Hungarian)

Keresztül-kasul ihlettel átitatott lapok,
ti férgek, bennük íveket rágjatok;
De lordok ízlésére tekintettel legyetek,
arany könyvkötéseik meg ne sértsétek.
