Pilinszky János: Metamorphosis (Átváltozás in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

Átváltozás (Hungarian)

Rossz voltam, s te azt mondtad, jó vagyok. 
Csúf, de te gyönyörűnek találtál. 
Végig hallgattad mindig, amit mondtam. 
Halandóból így lettem halhatatlan.

Metamorphosis (English)

I was bad, and you said I was good.
Ugly, but you found me beautiful.
You always cared to listen to what I told.
From mortal I thus became immortal.
