Joyce, James: Sorsa elérte… (Limerick (Lady Gregory) in Hungarian)

Portre of Joyce, James
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Limerick (Lady Gregory) (English)

There was an old lady named Gregory
Who cried, “Come, all ye poets in beggary.”
She found her imprudence
when hundreds of students
Cried, “We’re in that noble 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.
