Yeats, William Butler: Mert megmásoltad szavaid (A Deep-Sworn Vow in Hungarian)

Portre of Yeats, William Butler
Portre of Tellér Gyula

Back to the translator

A Deep-Sworn Vow (English)

Others because you did not keep

That deep-sworn vow have been friends of mine;

Yet always when I look death in the face,

When I clamber to the heights of sleep,

Or when I grow excited with wine,

Suddenly I meet your face.

Mert megmásoltad szavaid (Hungarian)

Mert megmásoltad szavaid,

most másokkal barátkozom;

de ha a halál arcát figyelem,

ha járom az álom csúcsait,

vagy a bor meghozza mámorom:

arcod ötlik fel hirtelen.
