Szép Ernő: I Come and Go and Stop ([Járok-kelek, megállok] in English)

Portre of Szép Ernő

[Járok-kelek, megállok] (Hungarian)

Járok-kelek, megállok,
Nézem a házakat,
Nézem a kocsikat,
A fáknak rácsait,
A lámpák oszlopát,
Nézem a boltokat
S megnézek minden embert,
S nézem a ligetet,
Füvét, virágait,
Nézem a hidakat
És nézem a Dunát,
És gyárak füstjeit
És a felhőt az égen
S mindig gondolkozom,
De amit gondolok
Úgy elmegy mint a zaj,
Úgy elmegy mint a füst,
Úgy elmegy mint a víz,
Úgy elmegy mint a felhő.

I Come and Go and Stop (English)

I come and go and stop
And look at the buildings
And look at the cars
Trees with grid-work arms
Streetlamps standing tall
Look at stores in the mall
And inspect everyone
And I look at the city park
Each flower and leaf of grass
And look at the bridges now
Watching the river flow
Smoke from the factories
And the clouds in the sky
And am thinking all the time
But all these thoughts of mine
Fade away like any noise
Dissolve in air like smoke
Flow away like water
Pass away like a cloud.
