Cuney, Waring: Képmás nélkül (No Images in Hungarian)

Portre of Cuney, Waring

No Images (English)

She does not know
her beauty,
she thinks her brown body
has no glory.
If she could dance
under palm trees
and see her image in the river,
she would know.
But there are no palm trees
on the street,
and dish water gives back
no images.

Képmás nélkül (Hungarian)

Nem tudja,
milyen szép.
Azt hiszi, nincs semmi vonzó
barna leánytestén.
Megtudná, ha meztelenül
pálmafák alatt
s láthatná
képét a patakban.
De itt az utcán
nincsenek pálmafák
s a pohár víz nem veri vissza
