Galsworthy, John: Élet? (Life? in Hungarian)

Portre of Galsworthy, John
Portre of P. T.

Back to the translator

Life? (English)

Life? What is Life?
The leaping up of level wave;
The flaring of an ashy fire;
The living wind in airless grave!

Death? What is Death?
The dying of immortal sun;
The sleeping of the sleepless moon;
The end of story not begun!

Uploaded byP. T.

Élet? (Hungarian)

Élet? Mi az élet?
Felszökő hullámképlet;
Hamuvá tűzben égnek;
Élő széllel csöndes sírba térnek!

Halál? Mi a halál?
A halhatatlan nap holtra vál;
Az álmatlan hold álma lesz delej;
A történet vége nem kezdődik el!
