Hewett, Dorothy: Anniversary (I)

Portre of Hewett, Dorothy

Anniversary (I) (English)

Driving back after midnight,

black streets, empty asphalt, wind.

Suddenly a rain of yellow leaves.

 

They lay in drifts over the wheel hubs,

clogging the windscreen wipers ... confetti?

We were driving home from our wedding,

an old shoe bumped behind us, full off leaves.

Évforduló (I) (Hungarian)

Visszafelé az úton éjfél után,

fekete utcák, üres aszfalt, szél.

Hirtelen sárga levéleső zúdul ránk.

 

Levelek tekerednek a kerekekre,

elakad az ablaktörlő... csak nem konfettieső?

Emlékszem, hazafelé tartottunk az esküvőnkről,

és egy öreg cipő zörgött mögöttünk, teli volt levelekkel.
