Lowry, Malcolm: Idegen fajzat (Strange Type in Hungarian)

Portre of Lowry, Malcolm
Portre of P. T.

Back to the translator

Strange Type (English)

I wrote: in the dark cavern of our birth.
The printer had it tavern, which seems better:
But herein lies the subject of our mirth,
Since on the next page death appears and dearth.
So it may be that God’s word was distraction,
Which to our strange type appears destruction,
Which is bitter.

Idegen fajzat (Hungarian)

Azt írtam: születésünk sötét barlangjában.
Az író a kocsmában, ami tán jobb:
De itt búvik derűnk tárgya,
Mivel a következő oldalon a halál közelg, és ínség.
Lehet, hogy Isten szava figyelemelterelés,
Arra az idegen fajzatunkra vár megsemmisítés,
Amelyik keserűbb.
