József Attila: (My dear friends...) ((Drága barátim...) in English)

Portre of József Attila

(Drága barátim...) (Hungarian)

Drága barátim, kik gondoltok még a bolonddal nektek irok most, innen, a tűzhely oldala mellől, ahova húzódtam melegedni s emlékezni reátok. Mert hiszen összevegyült a novemberi est hidegével bennem a lassúdan s alig oldódó szomorúság. Emlékezzetek ott ti is, és ne csupán hahotázva rám, aki köztetek éltem s akit ti szerettetek egykor.

(My dear friends...) (English)

My dear friends, who still think of a fool, I’m writing to you now, from here, from beside the fireplace where I’ve huddled up to get a little warm and to remember you. Because November night cold has mingled in me with my slowly and hardly dissolving grief. There you, too, remember and not just sneering at me, who lived among you and who you used to love.
