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

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Chamber Music XX (English)

In the dark pinewood

I would we lay,

In deep cool shadow

At noon of day.


How sweet to lie there,

Sweet to kiss,

Where the great pine forest

Enaisled is!


Thy kiss descending

Sweeter were

With a soft tumult

Of thy hair.


O, unto the pinewood

At noon of day

Come with me now,

Sweet love, away.

Kamarazene XX (Hungarian)

Sötét fenyőkről


Mély, hűvös árnyról

Déli napon.


Ha ott hevernénk


Mig fölénk a fenyves

Sátra borul,


Csak csönd pihenne

Csókod alatt,

S puhán zuhogna

Rám a hajad —


Oly hűs a fenyves

Déli verőn,

Ó, jöjj oda vélem,

Szép szeretőm.
