Stevens, Wallace: Üresség a parkban (Vacancy in the Park in Hungarian)

Portre of Stevens, Wallace
Portre of Israel Efraim

Vacancy in the Park (English)

March… Someone has walked across the snow,
Someone looking for he knows not what.

It is like a boat that has pulled away
From a shore at night and disappeared.

It is like a guitar left on a table
By a woman, who has forgotten it.

It is like the feeling of a man
Come back to see a certain house.

The four winds blow through the rustic arbor,
Under its mattresses of vines.

Üresség a parkban (Hungarian)

Március... Valaki átment a szűz havon, át,
Valaki, aki nem tudja, mit keres.

Mint hajó ha elsodorta az ár
A parttól az éjszaka s nincs nyoma.

Mint asztalon gitár mit odarakott
Egy asszony s már nem gondol vele.

Mint mikor egy ember visszaoson:
Egy házat látogatna meg.

S csak szél fúj négy irányból durva lugast
Venyigefonata alatt.
