Portre of Williams, William Carlos
Portre of Eörsi István

Suzanne (English)

Brother Paul! look!
- but he rushes to a different
window.
The moon!
 
I heard shrieks and thought:
What's that?
 
That's just Suzanne
talking to the moon!
Pounding on the window
with both fists:
 
     Paul!     Paul!
 
- and talking to the moon.
Shrieking
and pounding the glass
with both fists!
 
Brother Paul! the moon!

Zsuzsanna (Hungarian)

Bátyám, Pál! Nézd csak!
- de ő egy másik
ablakhoz rohan.
A hold!
 
Sikolyokat hallok:
Mi lehet ez?
 
Nicsak, ez Zsuzsanna,
a holdhoz beszél!
Az ablakra csap
két ököllel:
 
    Pál!    Pál!
 
- s a holdhoz beszél.
Sikoltva
veri az üveget
két ököllel!
 
Bátyám, Pál! A hold!
