Pilinszky János: Mégis

Portre of Pilinszky János

Mégis (Hungarian)

Látják a bejárati fényben
a szőlőlugast? A meszelt padot?
A levelek nyomasztó, viaszos zöld
távollétét? És mégis itt állt.

Still (English)

Can you see in the entrance light
the vine-arbour? The whitewashed bench?
The depressing, waxy green leaves
not being there? And still, it stood here.
