Pilinszky János: Accident (Baleset in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

Baleset (Hungarian)

Madarak vérzik be a mennyet,
cigányok és gyerekek léptei
lyuggatják át a szerenádnál szűzibb
kemény havat. De ez a szép, ez a
gyönyörűségen ejtett
örökös baleset.

Accident (English)

Birds drench heaven with blood,

footsteps of gipsies and children

leave holes in the heavy snow

purer than serenade. Yet, this is beautiful,

this eternal accident

befalling on beauty.
