Greene, Robert: Sir Geoffrey Chaucer képmása (The Description Of Sir Geoffrey Chaucer in Hungarian)

Portre of Greene, Robert

The Description Of Sir Geoffrey Chaucer (English)

His stature was not very tall,

Lean he was, his legs were small,

Hosed within a sock of red,

A buttoned bonnet on his head,

From under which did hang, I ween,

Silver hairs both bright and sheen.

His beard was white, trimmèd round,

His countenance blithe and merry found.

His sleeveless jacket large and wide,

With many plights and skirts side,

Of water camlet did he wear;

A whittle by his belt he wear,

His shoes were cornered, broad before,

His inkhorn at his side he wore,

And in his hand he bore a book.

Thus did this ancient poet look.

Sir Geoffrey Chaucer képmása (Hungarian)

Sovány volt s nem nagyon magas;

lábszára mint a piszkavas,

rajt harisnya-nadrág feszül;

fején sityak, nagy gomb felül,

alóla kiragyog haja,

mely ezüstfényű s lágy vala.

Fehér szakálla körbe nyírt,

arc jobban nem lehetne nyílt.

Vállán bő teveszőr zeke,

víg kacskaringókkal tele;

övén kés, díszes-veretes,

cipője szerfelett hegyes,

bár széles orru hajdanán;

tinta-szaru az oldalán,

keze könyvet tartván lecsüng.

Ez Chaucer, régholt mesterünk.
