Joyce, James: Kamarazene XIX (Chamber Music XIX in Hungarian)

Portre of Joyce, James

Chamber Music XIX (English)

Be not sad because all men

Prefer a lying clamour before you:

Sweetheart, be at peace again —

Can they dishonour you?


They are sadder than all tears ;

Their lives ascend as a continual sigh.

Proudly answer to their tears

As they deny, deny.

Kamarazene XIX (Hungarian)

Bánkódsz, hogy a férfiak

Hazug sirámmal töltik el füled:

Kedves, ne emészd magad —

Árthatnak ők neked?


Búsak, mint még könnyeik se;

Szüntelen sóhaj az éltük is.

Büszkén felelj könnyeikre:

Mint ők, tagadj te is.
