Carroll, Lewis: A krokodil (The Crocodile in Hungarian)

Portre of Carroll, Lewis
Portre of Kosztolányi Dezső

Back to the translator

The Crocodile (English)

"How doth the little crocodile

Improve his shining tail,

And pour the waters of the Nile

On every golden scale!


How cheerfully he seems to grin,

How neatly spreads his claws,

And welcomes little fishes in

With gently smiling jaws!"

A krokodil (Hungarian)

Ni, testét csinosítja épp

a krokodilgyerek,

sikálja arany pikkelyét,

önt rá Nílus-vizet.


Ni, szép karma hogy szétmered,

be vígan somolyog!

Száját tátja, és így rebeg:

"Kis hal, isten hozott!"
