Ferencz Győző: Earlier Finger-work (Régebbi ujjgyakorlat in English)

Portre of Ferencz Győző

Régebbi ujjgyakorlat (Hungarian)

Csak sejtheted, hogy mekkora öröm
Ujjadat éreznem a bőrömön.

Ha tenyerem esernyő és kabát,
Esőtől óvja kényes asszonyát,

És kéken futó halvány ereid
Ujjbegy-billentyűin veregetik,

Öklöd vékonycsontozatú madár,
A markomban búvóhelyet talál.

Ha elengeded, add vissza, siess,
Mert kezed nélkül a kezem üres.

Earlier Finger-work (English)

You can just assume what pleasure it is
to feel as your finger touches my skin.

If my palm is umbrella and a coat,
it can protect its lady from rainfall,

and your veins running so blue and feebly
pat lightly my palm, its finger-tip keys,

your fist is a bird with slender little bones,
it finds shelter in my hands tightly closed.

If you let it slip, give me back, quickly,
for without your hand my hand is empty.
