Creeley, Robert: Hegyek a pusztaságban (The Mountains in the Desert in Hungarian)

Portre of Creeley, Robert
Portre of Eörsi István

Back to the translator

The Mountains in the Desert (English)

The mountains blue now

at the back of my head,

such geography of self and soul

brought to such limit of sight,


I cannot relieve it

nor leave it, my mind locked

in seeing it

as the light fades.


Tonight let me go

at last out of whatever

mind I thought to have,

and all the habits of it.

Hegyek a pusztaságban (Hungarian)

A hegyek kéklenek most

homlokom mögött,

az Én s a lélek domborzata

tágítva olyan láthatárig,


hogy nem vethetem és nem

veszthetem el,

látó elmémet lenyűgözi,

míg fonnyad a fény.


Bujhassak ki végre

ma éjjel elmémből,

bármilyennek is véltem,

és minden szokásából.
