Dickinson, Emily: (Nem volt meglepő az —) (It did not surprise me — 39 in Hungarian)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily
Portre of Israel Efraim

Back to the translator

It did not surprise me — 39 (English)

It did not surprise me —
So I said — or thought —
She will stir her pinions
And the nest forgot,

Traverse broader forests —
Build in gayer boughs,
Breathe in Ear more modern
God's old fashioned vows —

This was but a Birdling —
What and if it be
One within my bosom
Had departed me?

This was but a story —
What and if indeed
There were just such coffin
In the heart instead?

(Nem volt meglepő az —) (Hungarian)

Nem volt meglepő az —
Gondoltam, mihelyt
Szárnyait kibontja,
Ő fészket felejt,

Mélyebb ligetet jár —
Vígabb ágbogat;
Modernebb fülekbe
Szív Isten-igét —

Az Fióka volt csak —
Hanem mi lehet
Ha kebelbarátom
Hagy el, — s engemet?

Az még mese volt csak —
De mi lesz veled
Szívedben ha tényleg
Koporsó marad?
(A vers 1858 körül keletkezett)
