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

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Chamber Music X (English)

Bright cap and streamers,

He sings in the hollow:

Come follow, come follow,

All you that love.

Leave dreams to the dreamers

That will not after,

That song and laughter

Do nothing move.


With ribbons streaming

He sings the bolder;

In troop at his shoulder

The wild bees hum.

And the time odreaming

Dreams is over —

As lover to lover,

Sweetheart, I come.

Kamarazene X (Hungarian)

Pántlika villan,

Dal száll a völgyön át:

Jöjjön hát, jöjjön hát

Mind, ki szeret!

Az álom elillan,

Balga hívének

Nincs kacaj, ének,

Nincs kikelet.


Pántlika lángol,

A vándor énekel,

Zsongó vadméhekkel

Lába előtt.

Az álmodozásból

Elég is lesz tán —

Úgy jövök eztán,

Mint szeretőd.
