Carew, Thomas: Arc rózsáit kedveled? (He That Loves A Rosy Cheek in Hungarian)

Portre of Carew, Thomas

He That Loves A Rosy Cheek (English)

He that loves a rosy cheek,

Or a coral lip admires,

Or from star-like eyes doth seek

Fuel to maintain his fires:

As old Time makes these decay,

So his flames must waste away.


But a smooth and steadfast mind,

Gentle thoughts, and calm desires,

Hearts with equal love combined,

Kindle never-dying fires:

Where these are not, I despise

Lovely cheeks or lips or eyes.

Arc rózsáit kedveled? (Hungarian)

Arc rózsáit kedveled?

Megbűvöl koráll ajak?

Vágyad, hogy csillagszemek

Lángolásra szítsanak?

Vén Idő kikezdi mind,

úgy emészti lángjaink.


Elme, mely nem szertelen,

bölcs vágy, gyöngéd gondolat,

két szívben egy szerelem

mindörökre lángra kap.

Ezek híján megvetek

arcot, ajkat és szemet.
