Tennyson, Alfred Lord: Menj tovább (Come Not, When I am Dead in Hungarian)

Portre of Tennyson, Alfred Lord
Portre of Tellér Gyula

Back to the translator

Come Not, When I am Dead (English)

Come not, when I am dead,

To drop thy foolish tears upon my grave,

To trample round my fallen head,

And vex the unhappy dust thou wouldst not save.

There let the wind sweep and the plover cry;

But thou, go by.


Child, if it were thine error or thy crime

I care no longer, being all unblest:

Wed whom thou wilt, but I am sick of Time,

And I desire to rest.

Pass on, weak heart, and leave me where I lie:

Go by, go by.

Menj tovább (Hungarian)

Ne jöjj, ha meghalok,

síromra ne ejts buta könnyeket,

dőlt fejem földjét ne tapodd,

ne dúld porom, ha meg nem mentheted.

Söpörjön szél, lile zengje dalát

te menj tovább.


Te hibád-e – vagy vétked –, gyermekem,

nem érdekel, silány minden dolog.

Köss frigyet bárkivel, én – kortól betegen –

pihenni akarok.

Menj, gyönge szív, nyugtom szét ne ziláld,

menj, menj tovább.
