A Poem by Sandor Petofi: Voices From Eger


Voices From Eger.[2]


Snow on the earth, clouds in the sky!
Who cares? Let it be so.
None need to marvel, for this is
The winter’s daily show.
To tell the truth, I could not tell
When winter came,
Did not a look into the street
The fact proclaim.

I sit here in this cheerful room,
With faithful friends around,
Who fill my bowl with “egri” wine
Such as but here is found.
The friends are true, the wines are good
Who would have more?
I now enjoy such happy days
As ne’er before.

If my contentment had but seeds
I’d sow them o’er the snow;
A rosy bower then in bloom
Would in the winter grow.
And if to heaven, I then might cast
My joyous heart,
To all the world it, like the sun,
Warmth would impart.

From here the mountain I can see,
Where Dobo once his name
Inscribed with sword and Turkish blood
Upon the page of fame.
Ah! until such a man as he
Again we see,
Much water will the Danube bear
Into the sea.

Ah! withered is long, long ago
The Magyar’s blooming spring,
And apathy inglorious
Doth to the nation cling.
Will ever spring again return
Into our land?
And will once more our plains and fields
In growth expand?

Let us drop this, but seldom I
Enjoy a feast thus rare,
So let us not our pleasure mar
By memories fraught with care:
And, after all, do sighs abate
Sorrow and grief?
The minstrel ’tis alone who finds
In song relief.

Let us our country’s cares not heed
For this one day alone,
And each sad thought of her let us
Now, while we drink, postpone.
Fill up once more! Another glass
Of glowing wine;
And still one more to follow that
None should decline.

Well, well! What do I notice now?
A cycle means each glass;
My mind now in the future roams,
While I the present pass.
And in this future I once more
Again rejoice,
And hear throughout my fatherland
Joy’s happy voice!
