Márai Sándor: Gift (Ajándék in English)
És mégis, ma is, így is,
And yet, even today, even so,
how much life gives us eternally!
It gives silently, with both hands,
the morning, the afternoon,
the twilight and all the stars,
the stuffy smell of trees,
the green waves of the river,
the reflection of someone’s eyes,
loneliness and loud noise!
How much it gives, how wealthy I am,
each time of day,
each single moment!
It is all gift,
I make a deep bow
and thank for it so.
