Mare, Walter de la: Sírfelirat (An Epitaph in Hungarian)

Portre of Mare, Walter de la

An Epitaph (English)

Here lies a most beautiful lady,

Light of step and heart was she;

I think she was the most beautiful lady

That ever was in the West Country.


But beauty vanishes, beauty passes;

However rare -- rare it be;

And when I crumble,who will remember

This lady of the West Country.

Sírfelirat (Hungarian)

Itt nyugszik egy gyönyörű asszony,

könnyed szív, könnyű boka -

én azt hiszem gyönyörűbb asszony

nem élt Nyugaton soha.


De múlik a, hervad a, hol van a szépség,

akármilyen csoda?

S ha tűnök enyészve, kinek jut eszébe

ez a szép Nyugat Asszonya?
