春,英诗二首

李晖

威廉·华兹华斯,1770-1850,英国诗人

威廉·华兹华斯
◎写在初春的诗行

半躺在小树林中,
听见一千种混杂的音符,
惬意间,愉悦之想
自心头引来悲哀的思绪。

大自然将贯穿我体内的
人类灵魂与她美丽的创造相连;
一想到人类对人类的所为
我的心便深感悲痛。

穿过樱草丛,绿色树阴里,
长春花蜿蜒着它的花冠;
我相信,每一朵花
都享受它呼吸的空气。

鸟儿在周围跳跃嬉戏,
它们的思想我无法猜度:
但它们最微小的举动
也似是一阵快乐的颤栗。

萌芽的细枝展开它们的扇子,
去捕捉那活泼的微风;
而我,不禁发自内心地
认为那当中自有欢娱。

假如这信仰是上天所赐,
假如这是大自然的神圣安排,
是否我就不再有理由
哀叹人类对人类的所为?

Lines Written In Early Spring By William Wordsworth

I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

To her fair works did Nature link
The human soul that through me ran;
And much it grieved my heart to think
What man has made of man.

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:–
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.

The budding twigs spread out their fan,
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That there was pleasure there.

If this belief from heaven be sent,
If such be Nature’s holy plan,
Have I not reason to lament
What man has made of man?

◎春

快吹起笛子!
正当这寂静。
鸟儿们
夙夜欢庆
夜莺
在山谷
云雀在天空
欢天
喜地
把新年迎进门。

小男孩
喜气洋洋,
小女孩
甜美小巧,
公鸡喔喔喔
你也跟着叫。
欢乐的话语
婴儿的喧吵
欢天
喜地
迎接这新年到。

小羊羔
我在这。
来舔舔我
白白的脖子。
让我扯扯
你松软的羊毛。
让我亲亲
你温和的脸颊
欢天
喜地
我们迎接这新年到。

Spring By William Blake

Sound the Flute!
Now it’s mute.
Birds delight
Day and Night
Nightingale
In the dale
Lark in Sky
Merrily
Merrily Merrily to welcome in the Year

Little Boy
Full of joy,
Little Girl
Sweet and small,
Cock does crow
So do you.
Merry voice
Infant noise
Merrily Merrily to welcome in the Year

Little Lamb
Here I am.
Come and lick
My white neck.
Let me pull
Your soft Wool.
Let me kiss
Your soft face
Merrily Merrily we welcome in the Year
