Carroll, Lewis: A krokodil (The Crocodile in Hungarian)

Portre of Carroll, Lewis
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

The Crocodile (English)

"How doth the little crocodile

Improve his shining tail,

And pour the waters of the Nile

On every golden scale!


How cheerfully he seems to grin,

How neatly spreads his claws,

And welcomes little fishes in

With gently smiling jaws!"

A krokodil (Hungarian)

Az édes kicsi krokodilus

ápolja farkát, hidd el:

ahogyan rázúdul a Nílus,

ragyog rajta a pikkely!


Nyájasan mosolyog az ajka,

s ápolt körméhez érve

ráköszön a sok kicsi halra.

állkapcsa szelíd fénye.
