Weöres Sándor: The four elements (|Mi volnék?| in English)

Portre of Weöres Sándor

|Mi volnék?| (Hungarian)

Tűzben fa parazsa volnék,
Vízben puha moha volnék,
Szélben jegenyefa volnék,
Földön apám fia volnék.

The four elements (English)

Embers of wood in fire I’d be–
Soft moss on stones in ponds I’d be– 
Swaying poplar in wind I’d be–
On Earth my father’s son I’d be–
