Janík, Pavol: Meno

Portre of Janík, Pavol

Meno (Slovak)

Len o hrot
prevyšuješ úspešnú náhodu.

O jedinú kropaj
predstihuješ trblietanie.

O vzlyk
prekonávaš akvarel.

Šíriš peľ.

Prikladáme tváre k tvojej
ako k okvetiu,
ustatí z toľkých zhôd okolností.

Dostaneš od nás meno,
ktoré budeš pokladať za svoje.

Name (English)

By just a point
you surpass successful fortune.

By just a drop
you outdo sparkle.

By sobbing
you surmount aquarelle.

You spread pollen.

We put our faces to yours
as to a flower’s corolla
weary of so much circumstance.

You’ll gain a name from us,
which you’ll consider as your own.
