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

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Chamber Music XVIII (English)

O Sweetheart, hear you

Your lover's tale;

A man shall have sorrow

When friends him fail.


For he shall know then

Friends be untrue

And a little ashes

Their words come to.


But one unto him

Will softly move

And softly woo him

In ways of love.


His hand is under

Her smooth round breast

So he who has sorrow

Shall have rest.

Kamarazene XVIII (Hungarian)

Hallgasd meg, drágám,

Hived szavát;

Nagy férfibánat a

Hűtlen barát.


Tudni, hogy végül

Mind-mind csaló,

S szájukban pernyévé

Porlik a szó —


Míg nem jön később

Valaki más:

Halkan becéző

Szerelmes társ


S mikor a kéz lágy

Keblére hull,

A férfibánat

Csenddé csitul.
