Ady Endre: My Magyar people (Az én magyarságom in English)

Portre of Ady Endre

Az én magyarságom (Hungarian)

Az én magyarságom
Mindennél keserűbb,
Mindennél igazabb.

Az én magyarságom
Véres és fekete,
Véres és szomorú.

Az én magyarságom
Büszke felleg-orom,
Büszke, nagy sirató.

Az én magyarságom:
Nincs ilyen átkozott,
Nincs ilyen igazi.

My Magyar people (English)

My Magyar people

Is most bitter of all,

Is most loyal of all.


My Magyar people

Is bloodied and sombre,

Is bloodied and doleful.


My Magyar people

Is a proud cloud-summit,

Is a great, proud lament.


My Magyar people:

There is none so accursed,

There is none so noble.
