Fletcher, John: Tiszafából fonjatok (Lay a Garland on My Hearse in Hungarian)

Portre of Fletcher, John
Portre of Rónay György

Back to the translator

Lay a Garland on My Hearse (English)

Lay a garland on my hearse

Of the dismal yew;

Maidens, willow branches bear;

Say, I died true.


My love was false, but I was firm

From my hour of birth.

Upon my buried body lie

Lightly, gentle earth!

Tiszafából fonjatok (Hungarian)

Tiszafából fonjatok

koszorút fölém.

Fűzfalombba rejtsetek,

híven haltam én.


Én hű voltam, de kedvesem

csalfa volt velem.

Szelíd föld, könnyű takaró

légy a testemen.
