Creeley, Robert: A feleség (The Wife in Hungarian)

Portre of Creeley, Robert

The Wife (English)

I know two women

and the one

is tangible substance,

flesh and bone.


The other in my mind


She keeps her strict

proportion there.


But how should I

propose to live

with two such creatures

in my bed –


or how shall he

who has a wife

yield two to one

and watch the other die.

A feleség (Hungarian)

Ismerek két nőt,

az egyik

érzékelhető szubsztancia,

hús és csont.


A másik elmémben


Ott őrzi szabatos



De hogyan éljek

két ilyen


az ágyamban –


vagy akinek

felesége van

adhat-e kettőt egyért,

tűrve, hogy meghal a másik?
