Hughes, Ted: Crow's Song of Himself

Portre of Hughes, Ted

Crow's Song of Himself (English)

When God hammered Crow
He made gold
When God roasted Crow in the sun
He made diamond
When God crushed Crow under weights
He made alcohol
When God tore Crow to pieces
He made money
When God blew Crow up
He made day
When God hung Crow on a tree
He made fruit
When God buried Crow in the earth
He made man
When God tried to chop Crow in two
He made woman
When God said: "You, win, Crow,"
He made the Redeemer.

When God went off in despair
Crow stropped his beak and started in on the two thieves.

Varjú éneke önmagához (Hungarian)

Mikor Isten kalapálta Varjút
Aranyat teremtett
Mikor Isten napon pirította Varjút
Gyémántot teremtett
Mikor Isten súlyokkal zúzta Varjút
Alkoholt teremtett
Mikor isten darabokra tépte Varjút
Pénzt teremtett
Mikor Isten felfújta Varjút
Nappalt teremtett
Mikor Isten fára akasztotta Varjút
Gyümölcsöt teremtett
Mikor Isten földbe temette Varjút
Férfit teremtett
Mikor Isten kettévágta Varjút
Nőt teremtett
Mikor Isten azt mondta: „Győztél, Varjú"
Megváltót teremtett.

Mikor Isten csüggedten elkotródott
Várjú a csőrét fente s nekilátott a két latornak.
