Joyce, James: Kamarazene IX (Chamber Music IX in Hungarian)

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Chamber Music IX (English)

Winds of May, that dance on the sea,

Dancing a ringaround in glee

From furrow, to furrow, while overhead

The foam flies up to be garlanded,

In silvery arches spanning the air,

Saw you my true love anywhere?

Welladay! Welladay!

For the winds of May!

Love is unhappy when love is away!

Kamarazene IX (Hungarian)

Májusi szél, ki lobogva

Körtáncot írsz a habokra,

Míg hullámról-hullámra tárul az út,

És fejedre tajték fon zöld koszorút

Ezüstös fényekkel íve felett,

Nem láttad az édesemet?

Búm sírva kísér,

Ó, májusi szél!

Ha távol az édes, a vágy mit is ér!
