Housman, A. E.: XL. Promárněný kraj (XL. The land of lost content in Czech)

Portre of Housman, A. E.
Portre of Pinkava , Václav Z. J.

Back to the translator

XL. The land of lost content (English)

Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

XL. Promárněný kraj (Czech)

Do srdce závan smrti, dech
vlá z končin dálných dál:
Těch modrých kopců, že bych všech
věžoví, statky znal?

To promarněný kraj je, ztrát,
zřím jeho zář a jas,
cest, kudy chodíval jsem rád,
jež nenavrátí čas.
