I have mixed feelings about the poetry and life of probably the best known Hungarian poet, Sándor Petőfi.
But I like his short poems, musings about various subjects.
So here’s the rough translation of one of his shorties.
Sadness? It’s a big ocean by Sándor Petőfi
Sadness? It’s a big ocean.
A small pearl of the ocean. Maybe.
By the time I manage to bring it
to the surface, I might even break it.
