Williams, William Carlos: Sonnet in Search of an Author

Portre of Williams, William Carlos

Sonnet in Search of an Author (English)

Nude bodies like peeled logs
sometimes give off a sweetest
odor, man and woman

under the trees in full excess
matching the cushion of

aromatic pine-drift fallen
threaded with trailing woodbine
a sonnet might be made of it

Might be made of it! odor of excess
odor of pine needles, odor of
peeled logs, odor of no odor
other than trailing woodbine that

has no odor, odor of a nude woman
sometimes, odor of a man.

Szonett keresi szerzőjét (Hungarian)

Csupasz testek mint lehántott törzsek
árasztják a legédesebb illatot
olykor, férfi és asszony

önkívülete a lomb alatt
az aromás fenyő-föveny

párnához illő a vadszőlő
kusza indáihoz
szonett lehetne ebből

Lehetne! önkívület illata,
fenyőtű illata, lehántott törzsek
illata, illat, mely csak az
illattalan vadszőlőből árad,

meztelen asszony illata
olykor, férfi illata.
