Weöres Sándor: Sheep school (A birka-iskola in English)

Portre of Weöres Sándor

A birka-iskola (Hungarian)

Egyszer volt egy nagy csoda,

Neve: birka-iskola.

Ki nem szólt, csak bégetett,

Az kapott dicséretet.

 

Ki oda se ballagott,

Még jutalmat is kapott,

Így hát egy se ment oda,

Meg is szűnt az iskola.

Sheep school (English)

Once there occurred a miracle:

a ‘sheep school’– what a spectacle!

only bleaters got the praise

talkers weren’t allowed to graze.

 

Those who never showed up there

got medals sewn into their hair–

therefore, not one sheep attended

and the ‘sheep school’ was suspended.
