Yeats, William Butler: Sellő (A mermaid in Hungarian)

Portre of Yeats, William Butler

A mermaid (English)

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

Sellő (Hungarian)

Egy hableány úszó legényt
Fogott. Hozzá simul,
Kacagva lemerül vele,
S felejti botorul
Kegyetlen örömében ezt:
Kedves is vízbe fúl.
