Dickinson, Emily: Kétségbeesés, félelem (305) (The difference between Despair (305) in Hungarian)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily
Portre of Károlyi Amy

Back to the translator

The difference between Despair (305) (English)

The difference between Despair

And Fear -- is like the One

Between the instant of a Wreck

And when the Wreck has been --


The Mind is smooth -- no Motion --

Contented as the Eye

Upon the Forehead of a Bust --

That knows -- it cannot see –

Kétségbeesés, félelem (305) (Hungarian)

Kétségbeesés, félelem

Olyan különböző,

Mint hajót törő pillanat

S a roncsot előző.


A tudat meg se rebben,

Megbékélt, mint a szem

A szobor homlokán, ami

Tudja világtalan.
