Hungarian Summary:

[...]Ez volt ám az ember, ha kellett, a gáton,Nem terem ma párja hetedhét országon;Ha most feltámadna s eljőne közétek,Minden dolgát szemfényvesztésnek hinnétek.Hárman sem birnátok súlyos buzogányát,Parittyaköveit, öklelő kopjáját;Elhülnétek, látva rettenetes pajzsát,'És, kit a csizmáján viselt, sarkantyúját.'

English Summary:

[...]He was brave and fearless, always ready for fight,There's nobody like him here and there and world-wide;If he would rise from dead and would come to your ranks,You'd believe all his things to be fancies and cranks.Neither three of yours could raise his ponderous maceAnd his sling-stones and pike and his iron sword-lace;You'd be well dumbfounded looking at his grand shield,'And at spurs he had on his boots in battle-field.'
