Dickinson, Emily: Hagyta játékait (She rose to his requirement, dropped in Hungarian)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

She rose to his requirement, dropped (English)

She rose to His Requirement — dropt
The Playthings of Her Life
To take the honorable Work
Of Woman, and of Wife —

If ought She missed in Her new Day,
Of Amplitude, or Awe —
Or first Prospective — Or the Gold
In using, wear away,

It lay unmentioned — as the Sea
Develop Pearl, and Weed,
But only to Himself — be known
The Fathoms they abide —

Hagyta játékait (Hungarian)

Megértette az elvárást,
Hagyta játékait.
Munkára cserélte, hisz asszony,
Azért jár tisztelet --

Az új életben elmulaszt
Ha kell, esélyeket;
Lemond nagyságról, csillogásról,
Elnyűtt lesz és kopott.

De észrevétlen -- mint a tenger
Nevel gyöngyöt, gyomot
Magának -- ami elvisel
Mázsás víztömeget.
