Pilinszky János: Agonia christiana (Agonia christiana in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

Agonia christiana (Hungarian)

Szellőivel, folyóival
oly messze még a virradat!
Felöltöm ingem és ruhám.
Begombolom halálomat.


Agonia christiana (English)

The dawn is still so far away
With its rivers, its breezy breath,
I shall put on my shirt, my suit,
And close the buttons on my death.
