Zukofsky, Louis: [Mikor a tücskök] ([When the crickets] in Hungarian)

Portre of Zukofsky, Louis

[When the crickets] (English)

When the crickets
sound like fifty water-taps
forsaken at once

the inclemency
of the inhuman noises
is the earth's

with its roadways
over cabins in the forests

the sheets smell
of sweet milk

all the waters
of the world

we are going
to sleep to sleep

[Mikor a tücskök] (Hungarian)

Mikor a tücskök
úgy zengnek mint ötven vízcsap
ha egyszerre nyitva hagyják

az embertelen zaj
a földé

melynek műútjai
erdei kunyhók felett futnak

friss tejszaga
van a lepedőknek

a világ
minden vizei

alszunk alszunk
