Weöres Sándor: Time’s come up pearls… (Barangolók in English)

Portre of Weöres Sándor

Barangolók (Hungarian)

Gyöngy az idő, vándoroljunk,

Nincs szekerünk, bandukoljunk,

Lassu folyó ága mellett

Járjuk a halk fűzfa-berket.


Este a láb gyönge, fáradt,

Lombok alatt nézünk ágyat.

Szöcske-bokán jő az álom,

Száll a világ lepke-szárnyon.

Time’s come up pearls… (English)

Time’s come up pearls–let us wander,

we’ve got no cart, so let’s saunter;

where the lazy river billows

let us walk in groves of willows.


Tired feet wear out by evening;

we make our cots in the clearing–

dreams come on grasshoppers’ ankles,

worlds soar on butterflies’ mantles.
