POETRY IN TRANSLATION (CCLII & CCLIII): ENGLAND – Carol RUMENS and W. Leslie NICHOLLS, Epigram, Epigramă

Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes

Epigram
Carol Rumens (b. 1944, London)

I wander if Ecclesiasstes
Could have been cheered up by a glass of pastis,
And if a double brandy
Might even have made him feel randy.

Epigramă
Carol Rumens (n. 1944, Londra)

Adam, în Paradis,
O fi băut pastis?
C-aşa, neapărat,
Cred că s-a ambalat!

Epigram
W. Leslie Nicholls

Albrecht Dürer
Naturally, never heard of the Führer…
I wonder if the latter…
But that does not really matter!

(from: “Other people’s Clerihews”, chosen by Gavin Ewart)

Albrecht Dürer

Albrecht Dürer

Epigramă
(W. Leslie Nicholls)

Desigur, Albrecht Dürer,
Nu-l cunoştea pe Führer.
Iar Adolf, de-l ştia,
N-ar face o para!
