I had no time to hate

I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.

 

Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.

 

*****

 

Nie miałam czasu na nienawiść –
Grób byłby ograniczał mnie,
A życie nie dość sowite,
Bym wrogości położyła kres.

 

Ni czasu miałam na miłość; 

A że działanie wskazanym jest,
Małe to miłości zadanie, myślałam,
Dość dużym dla mnie jednej.
