Weöres Sándor: Auntie went (Nénéd elment.* in English)

Portre of Weöres Sándor

Nénéd elment.* (Hungarian)

Nénéd elment. Ketten voltunk.

Testeden és testemen

kezeink mint cicakölykök

kergetőztek szűntelen.


Hamut fújtam a nyakadba

s megvarrtad a kalapom.

Rég volt. Most a szád helyett a

párna csücskét harapom.


*Rongyszőnyeg 107.

Auntie went (English)

Auntie went. Alone we two were.

Our bodies in embrace,

On them our hands, like kittens,

ran a ceaseless merry chase.


I blew ashes on your neck, you

stitched the hat upon my head.

That's past. Now it’s not your lips, but

pillows that I bite instead.
