The cricket and the ant


Throughout the long summer,
the ant always worked hard.
The cricket only sang,
and got drunk every night.

When autumn said goodbye,
the ant rested at last.
The cricket - one last time -
went to the nearest pub.

The ant stayed safe at home,
when winter had arrived,
the cricket's whimper was
not bothering inside.

And when sweet spring will come,
everything that is left
of the cricket goes in
the pantry of the ant.









A tücsök és a hangya

Szorgoskodott a hangya
a hosszú nyáron át.
A tücsök meg zenélt csak,
s leitta jól magát.

Megérkezett a tél, és
a hangya megpihent.
A tücsök még utószor
egy jó kocsmába ment.

Bezárkózott a hangya,
jöhet már hóvihar.
A tücsök nyöszörgése
bent senkit nem zavar.

S a kamrába, a hangya,
ha jön a szép tavasz,
a tücsökből behordja
mindazt, mi megmaradt.
