Howe, Fanny: Eszembe jutott (Remember in Hungarian)

Portre of Howe, Fanny
Portre of P. T.

Back to the translator

Remember (English)

Where the great Titanic
rolled through the night and struck
what might have been
the Statue of Liberty
carved in ice:
the whole golden-eyed hotel
sank in a blizzard
of swansdown and galleyed slaves –
the institution more ghastly
than the block of ice.

Eszembe jutott (Hungarian)

Ahol a nagy Titanic
átcsavarozott az éjszakán és ütközött
ott lett volna
a Szabadság-szobor
jégből faragva:
az egész aranyszemű hotel
hattyúpelyhek és gályarabok
hóviharában merül el –
az intézmény még szörnyűbb
mint a jéghegy.
