Thomas, Dylan: A királynőt ágyamba kértem… (Limerick (Ich Dien) in Hungarian)

Portre of Thomas, Dylan
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

Limerick (Ich Dien) (English)

The last time I slept with the Queen,
She said, as she whistled “Ich Dien,”*
“Please put the light out:
It’s royalty’s night out—
The Queen may be had—but not seen.”

*I serve

A királynőt ágyamba kértem… (Hungarian)

A királynőt ágyamba kértem.
"Ich dien" - súgtam. Rám rivallt: "Még nem!
'felsége mulat,
de intem az urat,
nem érinthet, csakis sötétben."
