Joyce, James: Sorsa elérte... (Limerick in Hungarian)

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Limerick (English)

There was a kind lady called Gregory,

Said 'Come to me poets in beggary'

But found her imprudence

When thousands of students

Cried 'All we are in that category'.

Sorsa elérte... (Hungarian)

Sorsa elérte jó Lady Gregoryt.

„Szegény költők -sírt-, szívem nem ebonit!"

Ám többezer poétát

hordoz ír planétánk –

s így pénze a csatornán lefolyik.
