Smith, Stevie: Jótanács kicsinyeknek (Advice To Young Children in Hungarian)

Portre of Smith, Stevie

Back to the translator

Advice To Young Children (English)

'Children who paddle where the ocean bed shelves steeply
Must take great care they do not,
Paddle too deeply.'
Thus spake the awful aging couple
Whose heart the years had turned to rubble.
But the little children, to save any brother,
Let it in at one ear and out at the other.

Jótanács kicsinyeknek (Hungarian)

„A gyermekek, ha a meredek tengerágyba másznak,
ne másszanak túl mélyre,
jobb lesz, ha vigyáznak.”
Imigyen szólt két agg szörny - férfi, nő -,
szivük a korral olyan lett, mint a kő.
De a kicsinyeket nem tudják hergelni,
egyik fülükön be, a másikon meg ki.
