Pilinszky János: One Day (Egy szép napon in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

Egy szép napon (Hungarian)

Mindíg az elhányt bádogkanalat,
a nyomorúság lim-lom tájait kerestem,
remélve, hogy egy szép napon
elönt a sírás, visszafogad szeliden
a régi udvar, otthonunk
borostyán csöndje, susogása.

mindíg is hazavágytam.

One Day (English)

All the time I’ve been looking for the lost
tin spoon, the bric-a-brac scenes of misery -
hoping that one day I’ll be
deluged by tears and welcomed back gently
by the old yard, the silent,
whispering ivy of our home.

All my life,
all the time I’ve been longing for home.
