Scott, F. R.: Régi dal (Old Song in Hungarian)

Portre of Scott, F. R.
Portre of Ferencz Győző

Back to the translator

Old Song (English)

far voices
and fretting leaves
this music the
hillside gives

but in the deep
Laurentian river
an elemental song
for ever

a quiet calling
of no mind
out of long aeons
when dust was blind
and ice hid sound

only a moving
with no note
granite lips
a stone throat

Régi dal (Hungarian)

messzi hangok
pendülő level
a hegyoldal
így zenél

de lent a mély
elemi dal

időtlen-idők halk
hívása szól
messzi évmilliókból
mikor vak volt a por
s hangot még jég takart

csak mozdul
nem hallhatod
