Weöres Sándor: Wingless (Szárny nélkül in English)

Portre of Weöres Sándor

Szárny nélkül (Hungarian)

(Rongyszőnyeg, 144)


Mikor anyából földre tettek,

Hová keverték röptömet?

Embernek többé ne szülessek,

Szárny nélkül élni nem lehet.

Wingless (English)



When I was dropped out of my mother

who dared rob me of my flying?

No more ‘human rebirth’– ever!

life without wings ain’t worth living.
