Coleridge, Samuel Taylor: Epigramma (Epigram in Hungarian)

Portre of Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

Back to the translator

Epigram (English)

Sir, I admit your general rule,

That every poet is a fool,

But you yourself may serve to show it,

That every fool is not a poet.

Epigramma (Hungarian)

Uram, fogadom, mit most mondok,

Elved, hogy a költők mind bolondok,

De ezzel magadról harsogod tova,

Hogy nem mind költő, ki ostoba.
