Isten veled

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Isten veled, Isten veled!
Hajh! Tetoled messze távozom.
Ah! De képed' és szerelmed;
Szümben1 hordozom.

Lelkemet, lelkemet zálogul
Vedd, csak szerelmet adj.
Ah! De hivet hü szerelmet,
Csak szerelmet adj.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
