Sweeney, Matthew: The Rising

Portre of Sweeney, Matthew

The Rising (English)

The totem pole towered above the birches
whose silver bark was marked by the moon
and the dead fox lying on the highway,
saw the face on the pole begin to smile
and keep on smiling, till the creature rose
to run and disappear deep into the forest.

A feltámadás (Hungarian)

A nyírfák a totemoszlop fölé tornyosultak
ezüst kérgük a hold jelét viselte
és az országúton holt róka feküdt,
látta az arc az oszlopon elmosolyodik
és mosolyog tovább, amíg a teremtmény
futásnak ered és eltűnik az erdő mélyén.
