Frost, Robert: Rabul és Szabadon (Bond and Free in Hungarian)

Portre of Frost, Robert

Bond and Free (English)

Love has earth to which she clings
With hills and circling arms about—
Wall within wall to shut fear out.
But Thought has need of no such things,
For Thought has a pair of dauntless wings.

On snow and sand and turf, I see
Where Love has left a printed trace
With straining in the world’s embrace.
And such is Love and glad to be.
But Thought has shaken his ankles free.

Thought cleaves the interstellar gloom
And sits in Sirius’ disc all night,
Till day makes him retrace his flight,
With smell of burning on every plume,
Back past the sun to an earthly room.

His gains in heaven are what they are.
Yet some say Love by being thrall
And simply staying possesses all
In several beauty that Thought fares far
To find fused in another star.

Rabul és Szabadon (Hungarian)

A Szerelem földön él
Ölelő kar-sáncok alatt —
Félelmet kizáró falak.
A Gondolat, az sose fél,
A Gondolat, az szárnyra kél.

Látom havon, földön, gyepen
A Szerelemnek nyomait
Ölelik s ő erőlködik.
S ennek örül a Szerelem.
A Gondolat bilincstelen.

Szétvág csillagközi ködöt
A Szíriusz-korongban ül,
Aztán nappal visszarepül,
Égésszag a szárnyai között,
Ha viszontlátja őt a föld.

Szerezzen az égben akármi sokat!
Azt mondják rab a Szerelem
És mégis trónol mindenen,
Sok szép dolgon mit a Gondolat
Lepárol más csillag alatt.
(A Szíriusz (Ebcsillag): a legfényesebb csillag.)
