MacDiarmid, Hugh: A jövő csontváza (The Skeleton of the Future in Hungarian)

Portre of MacDiarmid, Hugh

Back to the translator

The Skeleton of the Future (English)

(At Lenin’s Tomb)


Red granite and black diorite, with the blue

Of the labradorite crystals gleaming like precious stones

In the light reflected from the snow; and behind them

The eternal lightning of Lenin's bones.

A jövő csontváza (Hungarian)

(Lenin sírjánál)


Rőt gránit, fekete diorit, friss havon

visszaverődve kék csillámokkal a drága-

kőként megvillanó labradorit – s belül

Lenin csontjainak örök világossága.
