Nagy László: Szöcskék a harangon

Portre of Nagy László

Szöcskék a harangon (Hungarian)

Itt ugrálnak a bronz-sebeken

Itt szöszögik apró igéik

S tolakszik a fű, a fű, a fű

Tömören a harang szivéig.

Grashoppers on the bell (English)

Here they caper all over the scarred bronze

here hiss the tiniest of words they have to tell

and the grass, the grass, the grass is surging

massively on into the heart of the bell.
