Conkling, Hilda: Csodálkozás (I keep wondering in Hungarian)

Portre of Conkling, Hilda

I keep wondering (English)

I saw a mountain
And he was like Wotan looking at himself in the water.
I saw a cockatoo
And he was like sunset clouds.
Even leaves and little stones
Are different to my eyes sometimes.
I keep wondering through and through my heart
Where all the beautiful things in the world
Come from.
And while I wonder,
They go on being beautiful.

Csodálkozás (Hungarian)

Láttam egy hegyet,
olyen volt, mint Wotan, ki a vízben nézi magát.
Láttam egy kakadut,
olyan volt, mint a napnyugta felhői.
A levelek s az apró kavicsok
mások az én szememben néhanap.
Csodálkozás veri fel szívemet,
hogy a világ sok-sok szépsége
ugyan honnan ered?
S míg mindezen csodálkozom
szépségük itt él körülöttem.
