Oscar Wilde: The Grave of Keats (Vertaling Cornelis W. Schoneveld)

Oscar Wilde

(1854-1900)

 

The Grave of Keats

(sonnet)

 

Rid of the world’s injustice, and his pain,

 He rests at last beneath God’s veil of blue:

 Taken from life when life and love were new

The youngest of the martyrs here is lain,

 

Fair as Sebastian, and as early slain.

 No cypress shades his grave, no funeral yew,

 But gentle violets weeping with the dew

Weave on his bones an ever-blossoming chain.

 

O proudest heart that broke for misery!

 O sweetest lips since those of Mitylene!

  O poet-painter of our English land!

 

  Thy name was writ in water – it shall stand:

 And tears like mine will keep thy memory green,

As Isabella did her Basil tree.

 

Rome

 

 

Oscar Wilde

Het graf van Keats

(sonnet)

In de nieuwe vertaling van Cornelis W. Schoneveld

 

Van ‘s werelds onrecht en zijn pijn bevrijd,

 Rust hij op ‘t laatst onder God’s hemelbaan:

 Uit liefde en leven, nieuw nog, heengegaan

Ligt hier de jongste lijder neergevlijd,

 

Schoon als Sebastiaan, even jong ook dood.

 Hier geeft cipres noch taxus schaduw af,

 Maar waar viooltjes wenen op zijn graf

Is zijn gebeente nooit van bloei ontbloot.

 

O hart vol trots dat brak door hoe het leed!

 O stem die ‘t zoetst sinds Mytylene’s is!

  O schilder-dichter van ons Engeland!

 

  Je schreef je naam in water-hij houdt stand:

 En ook mijn traan steunt jouw gedachtenis,

Zoals Isabella’s balsemkruid dat deed.

 

Rome
