Petőfi Sándor: Hope (Remény in English)

Portre of Petőfi Sándor

Remény (Hungarian)

Mi a remény?... förtelmes kéjleány,

Ki minden embert egyaránt ölel.

Ha rápazarlod legszebb kincsedet,

Az ifjuságot: akkor elhagy, el!


Pest, 1845. október 16. - november 25. között

Hope (English)

What then is hope? A heinous lusty whore,

embracing all the same way for a spell.

Waste your youth, your finest treasure on her,

and she will leave, forsaking you as well!
