József Attila: (Horti)culture (Kultúra in English)

Portre of József Attila

Kultúra (Hungarian)

A virág elfáradt már szagosodni.


hogy mifenének tettük asztalunkra.

S igyekezett árnyékot vetni,

nagyobbat, mint a kertben

s elfáradt, mikor nem néztünk oda.


De észrevettem.


1926 ősze [?]

(Horti)culture (English)

By now the flower was tired of exuding fragrance.

Found it tedious:

why in blazes did we put it on our table,

and tried to cast a shadow

bigger than in the garden,

then tired when we did not look its way.

But I noticed.
