Crane, Stephen: In the desert

Portre of Crane, Stephen

In the desert (English)

In the desert

I saw a creature, naked, bestial,

Who, squatting upon the ground,

Held his heart in his hands,

And ate of it.

I said, “Is it good, friend?”

“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

 

“But I like it

“Because it is bitter,

“And because it is my heart.”

A sivatagban (Hungarian)

Egy szörnyű lényt

Láttam a sivatagban meztelen,

Guggolva ült a földön,

Kezében tartotta a szívét,

S abból evett.

"Ízlik, testvér?" kérdeztem én.

"Keserű, keserű" felete.

 

"De szeretem,

Mivel keserű,

Mivel az én szívem.”
