Hydref Eto

Hydref Eto

Ar ael y bryn, lle mae’r llwyni lletraws

a’r gwrychoedd gwargam

yn edliw’r gwynt i’r gwyll,

 

yno mae’r hydref

yn tynnu wynebau watsus y coed...

 

y dail fel cocos yn chwyrlïo yn y gwynt,

fel llythrennau’n hedfan,

a’r wyddor yn datod.


 

Autumn Again

On the brow of the hill,

where bent bushes and hunched hedgerows

complain of the wind to the dusk,

 

this is where autumn takes down

the watch-faces of the trees ...

 

the leaves are like cogwheels

twirling in the wind, like letters flying,

as the alphabet disintegrates.

Translation: Ifor ap Glyn


 

Retour de l’Automne

Au front de la colline, là où taillis torturés

et rangées de buissons courbés,

à la nuit se lamentent des tempêtes,

 

c’est là que l’automne

retire à la forêt ses cadrans de pendules …

 

feuilles qui tourbillonnent dans le vent, en roues dentées,

en lettres envolées,

alphabet démantelé.

Traduction: Marie-Thérèse Castay
