Goodman, Paul: Mint Ádám (Like Adam in Hungarian)

Portre of Goodman, Paul
Portre of P. T.

Back to the translator

Like Adam (English)

Like Adam firmly walking to
the farm-work that he knew to do
  in deep confusion, for the grim
  news of everyday to him
happened each thing by surprise
like a fist between the eyes
  - so let me day to day work on
  in the thick cloud that has sunk down.

Mint Ádám (Hungarian)

Mint Ádám ment határozottan
a földműves munkába ami tudta nem
   okoz mélyebb zavart, a mindennap
   vele történik minden dolog szörnyű
híreinek meglepetése mint
ökölcsapás a szemek közé
   - hadd dolgozzam nap mint nap abban
   a sűrű felhőben ami leereszkedett.
