Hopkins, Gerard Manley: Ég – rév (Heaven – Haven in Hungarian)

Portre of Hopkins, Gerard Manley

Heaven – Haven (English)

I have desired to go    

Where springs not fail,           

To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail

And a few lilies blow.


And I have asked to be

Where no storms come,         

Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,           

And out of the swing of the sea.

Ég – rév (Hungarian)

Követném vágyamat,

hol semmi tél,

mezőkre, hol a menny lágy s jég nem ér

s pár liliom fakad.


Vágy arra vonz, ahol

vihar elül,

hol zöld hullám öbölben csendesül

s tengerrengés el nem sodor.
