Poe, Edgar Allan: Sör-sorok (Lines on Ale in Hungarian)

Portre of Poe, Edgar Allan

Back to the translator

Lines on Ale (English)

Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain –
Quaintest thoughts – queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.

Sör-sorok (Hungarian)

Tölts be fölt borostyánkővel,
    Hadd ürítsem serlegem.
Ettől ébredezve fölkel
    Friss örömmel szellemem -
Hány vad eszme, lázas álom
    Jő s tűnik nyomban tova;
Száll az óra? mit se' bánom:
    Sört iszom ma éjszaka.
