Russell, Bertrand: Egy ifjú hölgy hazája... (Limerick in Hungarian)

Portre of Russell, Bertrand
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Limerick (English)

There was a young girl from Shanghai

who was so exceedingly shy

that undressing at night,

she turned out the light

for fear of the All-seeing Eye.

Egy ifjú hölgy hazája... (Hungarian)

Egy ifjú hölgy hazája Sangháj,

és esténként így szól: „E hang fáj!

Nem vetkőzöm, fenét,

csak ha itt a setét.

Buddha mindent lát. Hirdesse fanfár.”
