Portre of Housman, A. E.
Portre of Répás Norbert

XL. The land of lost content (English)

Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

XL. Premárnené územie (Slovak)

Do srdca mi zásvit smrti dýcha
hen z ďalekých krajov veje:
Jeho statky, štíty, modré bralá
znať mal by som variže?

Je to premárnené územie,
vidím jeho planinu a jas,
bodré cesty, moje šľapaje
ktoré nenavráti čas.
