Pilinszky János: To S. W. (S. W.-hez in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

S. W.-hez (Hungarian)

Megkaptad végűl a kegyelmet?
Vagy olyan egyedűl maradtál,
mint az a férfi, aki tegnap -
vagy az a fiú, aki ma -
egyszóval, mint azok a lények,
akik számára a világ
már semmi más, mint tárgyi bizonyíték?

To S. W. (English)

Did you in the end receive pardon?
Or did you remain as lonesome
as the man who yesterday -
or the boy who today -
in one word the beings
for whom the world’s already
nothing else but a piece of evidence?
