József Attila: (Ime, hát megleltem hazámat…)

Behold I have found my land…, by Attila József (11/04. 1905 – 03/12. 1937), Hungarian poet, my favourite. The poem was written 24. Nov. 1937, this is one of his last poems. In Hungary we celebrate the Day of Poetry today, on his birthday. He lived from his very childhood in immense poverty in Budapest, his father abandoned the family and his 3 children. The poets mother had to give the child to foster parents in his 3-year-old age, to a rural environment among peasants for some years – it was a common fate at that time for a lot of people in the era of the Great Depression – and the foster family hate and chased him. The greatest hurt was for the child Attila József that they grabbed from him even his name Attila, saying, “there isn’t such a name like Attila”. And they called him “Pista” that is a short form for Stephen, about “Steve”. This is what the row “Where my name’s cut without a fault” refers to. Other features of his life you can see in this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attila_Jzsef Source of the quotation: https://www.babelmatrix.org/works/hu/Jzsef_Attila-1905/Ime_ht_megleltem_hazmat/en/31105-Behold_I_have_found_my_land… And http://www.mathstat.dal.ca The translation is work of Vernon Watkins. I have recently a little spare time, because of this, I share a translation that is not mine. I will share here the Hungarian, original version written by the original Hungarian orthography of that time, as well. The photo is mine, on the bank of the river Danube, next to the buildings of the Parliament, Budapest, Hungary.

The Sun

Every time I wake up it makes me so happy to have the Sun above my head. The best thing about going to the beach is the suntan. But sunblock is important too.

The Four Rivers’ Dragon legend is the first of them that is the keynote at the same time. The story is continued in my website by the following headlines: “After the Battle of the Red Dragon, The Four Rivers’ Star and the Dragons’ Folk, They Gallop Away at the Head of their Folks on the Star Path, Engrave it in Dragon Blood on the Four Rivers’ Pillar!” It was written in 2008, translated in 2021. Illustration to my story is by cowins or Alex Hu, Pixabay.
