Hass, Robert: Paplan: Nagypapa halála (Counterpane: Grandfathers's Death in Hungarian)

Portre of Hass, Robert
Portre of Gyukics Gábor

Back to the translator

Counterpane: Grandfathers's Death (English)

On the pillow

the embroidered flowers

are fading

fading that patient spider

my grandmother


who made the best

of losses

bright quilts from rags

that are every bird

Audubon ever killed

in America.

Paplan: Nagypapa halála (Hungarian)

A párnán

hímzett virágok


hervad a türelmes pók

a nagymamám


a veszteségből

ő hozta ki legtöbbet

a rongyból

ragyogó paplanokat

Audubon Amerikában megölt*

összes madarát.


*Audubon (1785-1851) amerikai természettudós, aki minden madarat, amit látott, lefestett. (A ford.)
