Pound, Ezra: A Ben Bulben alatt (Under Ben Bulben in Hungarian)

Portre of Pound, Ezra
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Under Ben Bulben (English)

Neath Ben Bulben's buttock lies
Bill Yeats, a poet twoice the soize
Of William Shakespear, as they say
Down Ballykillywuchlin way.
Let saxon roiders break their bones
Huntin' the fox
                     thru dese gravestones.

A Ben Bulben alatt (Hungarian)

A Ben Bulben-hegy seggiben
Bill Yeats, a költő mekpihen.
Shakespear, de kéccer, mer' zseni,
mer' ballykillywuchlini.
Törje nyakát sok randa szász,
ha sírkövin
                rókát vadász.
