Parker, Dorothy: Távolság (Distance in Hungarian)

Portre of Parker, Dorothy
Portre of Naschitz Frigyes

Back to the translator

Distance (English)

Were you to cross the world, my dear,
To work or love or fight,
I could be calm and wistful here,
And close my eyes at night.
It were a sweet and gallant pain
To be a sea apart;
But, oh, to have you down the lane
Is bitter to my heart.

Távolság (Hungarian)

Ha világgá mennél, hogy megkeress
egy karéj kenyeret,
hogy igyekezve dolgozz, küzdj, szeress:
én nyugodt lennék. Sőt elégedett.
Ha tenger volna köztünk, bennem
bánat volna és derű,
De mivel itt vagy és mégis messze
a tudat fáj és több, mint keserű.
