Ady Endre: I cannot come to you (Nem mehetek hozzád in English)

Portre of Ady Endre
Portre of Ország-Land, Thomas

Back to the translator

Nem mehetek hozzád (Hungarian)

Szép nyár van ott?
Itt nyara van minden pimasznak:
Én meghalok.

Nem akarod?
Te vagy az én szent bolondságom
S én meghalok.

Dalok, dalok,
Mások mehetnek, törnek, élnek
S én meghalok.

Fehér karok,
Tán nem is vártok. Nem öleltek:
Én meghalok.

Bús és balog
Mindenem: csókom, utam, sorsom
S én meghalok.

I cannot come to you (English)

Is summer nigh?
Each fool has his summer over here,
and I shall die.

Do you protest?
You are my great love, sacred madness,
and I shall die.

Oh songs, oh songs –
Others will go on with will and pleasure
and I shall die.

Caressing arms,
perhaps you yearn for me no longer,
and I shall die.

My path, my fate –
All my life has grown sad and awkward.
And I shall die.
