If I Were a Bell
                        In memoriam
                        József Romhányi
If I were a bell,
I would peal as I pined for you.
If I were the sun,
I would swell as I shined for you.
If I were the wind,
I would feel
and caress and undress you.
If I were the rain,
I’d rejoice as I moistened you.
If I were a stallion,
I’d neigh as I carried you...
And if I were insane,
I might
even have married you.
