Masters, Edgar Lee: Spoon River Anthology - Serepta Mason

Portre of Masters, Edgar Lee

Spoon River Anthology - Serepta Mason (English)

My life's blossom might have bloomed on all sides

Save for a bitter wind which stunted my petals

On the side of me which you in the village could see.

From the dust I lift a voice of protest:

My flowering side you never saw!

Ye living ones, ye are fools indeed

Who do not know the ways of the wind

And the unseen forces

That govern the processes of life.

A Spoon River-i holtak - Serepta Mason (Hungarian)

Életem virága virulhatott akárhány irányba

Ha a keserű szél szirmaimat elsatnyította

És azokat pont, miket ti is láthattatok.

A porból immár így kiáltok:

Virágzásomat sohasem láttátok!

Ti élők, bolondok vagytok

Nem ismeritek a szelek járását

A láthatatlan erőket

Mik az életet irányítják.
