And now the wind arrives with its far away stories, and the panicked eaves start to whisper; as a gradual mild caresses a tender wife’s face, as she cries out in her sleep and stirs wide awake. And in her tender sleepy eyes the sunshine of cause flickers once again, as she displays on her goals, and prepares to go into the wild chaotic international once again. She seems approximately, and her cool protecting hand flutters lightly over my face, and as I nod off, with my drained center beating subsequent to hers, i believe the breath i've got come to grasp so good on my lids. December thirteen, 1937 ÉJFÉL Két felleg ül az esti ég nehéz hajában és egymásra dörmög, éjfél van, összebotlik ép siralmas szerda és hitvány csütörtök. Fű nő, rügy izzad, hallgatag gubók ölében készül már a lepke, halat pólyálgat a patak, gyöngy pára száll az álmodó hegyekre. Gyöngy pára száll pilládra is, a szádra szárnyas, könnyütestü árnyék, hajadban kislányos, hamis fogócska izgató emléke hál még. Oly szép vagy és oly fiatal! s én arra gondolok, amíg csodállak, hogy vár talán még diadal és várnak még beszédes pálmaágak! 1937. április 23. hour of darkness clouds squat within the lush darkish mane of the night sky and growl at each other, it’s dead night, and this pitiful Wednesday and wretched Thursday fall over one another. The grass grows, the buds perspire, whereas in the laps of reticent cocoons, butterflies arrange for start, and the circulate rocks and cradles its fish, as a pearly mist settles over the dreaming mountains. The pearly mist alights in your lashes to boot, and in your lips a pinioned, tantalizing colour, whereas on your hair the provocative light reminiscence of a tender lady enjoying tag nonetheless lingers. you're so appealing and younger! and as I stay upon this inspiration, I bow prior to you, and imagine that maybe a few triumphs nonetheless look forward to me beside the eloquent fingers! April 23, 1937 ESTE A HEGYEK KÖZÖTT 1. Az este már a fák közt markolász, mikor a mélyben feltűnik a ház s a síkos lejtő aljában tömör hagymaszaggal s meleggel üdvözöl. Míg léceim a falnak állitom, hóförgeteg fut át a kis hidon, hajamba kap s az ajtóhoz közel, akár egy búcsuzó lány, átölel. 2. Gőzölnek benn a fáradt emberek, a kandi lámpán fenn egy régi ág, Szilveszterről maradt fagyöngy remeg s az esti ablak csupa jégvirág. Visszatérek hozzád, mert kivánlak és úgy kiáltok majd, ahogy fényben kiált a sarkok Nansene, mikor a messzi fénylő célt eléri. Ó, mily régóta is szeretlek! Két napja már, hogy nem ölelsz meg! Körmöm lehellem és már írom is: „szeretni foglak túl a síron is! ” Körmöm sikolt s a fényes üvegen szép neved betűi megmaradnak, s a ringató betük virágos alján érzelmesen könnyezni kezd az ablak. three. „Eszem, iszom, iszom, eszem, mit is tehetnék én, szeretnék itt egy-két órát üldögélni békén…” S míg dúdolok a fáradság lassan rámszakad. Foszlik a szó, s alattam már alvásra vár a pad. four. Az utak is sötétbe vesztek, este van s a fekhelyem kemény, de tollam még ne maradj veszteg, épülj tovább álmos költemény! five. Az ember a hóban vándorol, léceit fel- és lecsatolja, betér egy házba, eszik, iszik, s elernyed, nincsen semmi dolga.
