Radnóti Miklós: Mary (Mária in English)

Portre of Radnóti Miklós

Mária (Hungarian)

A kezeit nézd! haló
virágok a fagyban. Haj
omlik s galamb a párnán
hogy megül. Mária ő!
de kedvesed is volt már,
szeretőd ilyen arcú!

Mary (English)

Just look at her hands! like dying
flowers in frost. Her hair cascading.
She’s resting, a graceful dove
on a pillow. She’s Mary!
but you have known and loved
girls with such faces!
