Williams, William Carlos: Complete Destruction

Portre of Williams, William Carlos

Complete Destruction (English)

It was an icy day.
We buried the cat,
then took her box
and set fire to it
in the back yard.
Those fleas that escaped
earth and fire
died by the cold.

Tökéletes pusztítás (Hungarian)

Zimankós volt a nap,
a macskát eltemettük
a hátsó kertben,
aztán gyufával
meggyújtottuk a vackát.
A bolhák, túlélvén
földet és tüzet,
halálra fagytak.
