Pilinszky János: On The Coast (A tengerpartra in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

A tengerpartra (Hungarian)

A tengerpartra kifekszik a tenger,
a világ végén pihen a szerelmem,
mint távoli nap vakít a szivem,
árnyéka vagyunk valamennyien.

On The Coast (English)

The sea lies down on the sea-coast,
my love rests at the back of beyond,
my heart dazzles like a faraway sun,
we are shadows of it, all of us.
