Nemes Nagy Ágnes: Lazarus (Lázár in English)

Portre of Nemes Nagy Ágnes
Portre of Szirtes, George

Back to the translator

Lázár (Hungarian)

Amint lassan felült, balválla-tájt
egy teljes élet minden izma fájt.
Halála úgy letépve, mint a géz.
Mert feltámadni éppolyan nehéz.


Lazarus (English)

As slowly he sat up the ache suffused
his whole left shoulder where his life lay bruised,
tearing his death away like gauze, section by section
since that is all there is to resurrection.
