Stafford, William: Végső kérdések (Ultimate Problems in Hungarian)

Portre of Stafford, William

Ultimate Problems (English)

In the Aztec design God crowds

into the little pea that is rolling

out of the picture.

All the rest extends bleaker

because God has gone away.


In the White Man design, though,

no pea is there.

God is everywhere,

but hard to see.

The Aztecs frown at this.


How do you know he is everywhere?

And how did how did he get out of the pea?

Végső kérdések (Hungarian)

Az aztékok szerint Isten

a kis borsószemben szorong,

s a borsó elgurul most.

Ami marad, tág és rideg lesz,

mert elment az Isten.


A Sápadtarcú viszont

nem tud a borsóról.

Isten mindenütt jelen van,

csak nehéz meglátni.

Az aztékok a homlokukat ráncolják erre.


Honnan tudod, hogy mindenütt jelen van?

És a borsószemből hogyan jött elő?
