飛鳥集



               泰戈爾
               1                   
   夏天的飛鳥,飛到我的窗前唱歌,又飛去了。            
   秋天的黃葉,它們沒有什么可唱,只歎息一聲,飛落在那里。     
  stray birds of summer come to my window to sing and fly away.
  and yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall
  there with a sign.
               2                   
   世界上的一隊小小的漂泊者呀,請留下你們的足印在我的文字里。   
  o troupe of little vagrants of the world, leave your footprints in my words.
               3                   
   世界對著它的愛人,把它浩翰的面具揭下了。            
   它變小了,小如一首歌,小如一回永琲滷筆k。           
  the world puts off its mask of vastness to its lover.
  it becomes small as one song, as one kiss of the eternal.
               4                   
   是大地的淚點,使她的微笑保持著青春不謝。            
  it is the tears of the earth that keep here smiles in bloom.
               5                   
   無垠的沙漠熱烈追求一葉綠草的愛,她搖搖頭笑著飛開了。  
   the mighty desert is burning for the love of a bladeof grass who
  shakes her head and laughs and flies away.
               6                   
   如果你因失去了太陽而流淚,那么你也將失去群星了。        
  if you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars.
               7                   
   跳舞著的流水呀,在你途中的泥沙,要求你的歌聲,你的流動呢。你肯挾瘸足的泥沙而俱下么?                         
  the sands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing
  water. will you carry the burden of their lameness?
               8                   
   她的熱切的臉,如夜雨似的,攪扰著我的夢魂。           
  her wishful face haunts my dreams like the rain at night.
               9                   
   有一次,我們夢見大家都是不相識的。               
   我們醒了,卻知道我們原是相親相愛的。              
  once we dreamt that we were strangers.
  we wake up to find that we were dear to each other.
              10                   
   憂思在我的心里平靜下去,正如暮色降臨在寂靜的山林中。      
  sorrow is hushed into peace in my heart like the evening among
  the silent trees.
              11                   
   有些看不見的手,如懶懶的微(風思)的,正在我的心上奏著  潺(水爰)的樂聲。                  
  some unseen fingers, like an idle breeze, are playing upon my heart
  the music of the ripples.
              12                   
   “海水呀,你說的是什么?”                  
   “是永琲犖簸搳C”                       
   “天空呀,你回答的話是什么?”                
   “是永琲漕I默。”                       
  what language is thine, o sea?the language of eternal question.what language is thy answer, o sky?the language of eternal silence.
              13                   
   靜靜地听,我的心呀,听那世界的低語,這是它對你求愛的表示呀。  
  listen, my heart, to the whispers of the world with which it makes
  love to you.
              14                   
   創造的神秘,有如夜間的黑暗--是偉大的。而知識的幻影卻不過如晨間之霧。                                
  the mystery of creation is like the darkness of night--it is great.delusions of knowledge are like the fog of the morning.
              15                   
   不要因為峭壁是高的,便讓你的愛情坐在峭壁上。          
  do not seat your love upon a precipice because it is high.
              16                   
   我今晨坐在窗前,世界如一個路人似的,停留了一會,向我點點頭又走過去了。                                
  i sit at my window this morning where the world like a passer-by stops
  for a moment, nods to me and goes.
              17                   
   這些微(風思),是樹葉的簌簌之聲呀;它們在我的心里歡悅地微語著。
  there little thoughts are the rustle of leaves; they have their
  whisper of joy in my mind.
              18                   
   你看不見你自己,你所看見的只是你的影子。            
  what you are you do not see, what you see is your shadow.
              19                   
   神呀,我的那些愿望真是愚傻呀,它們雜在你的歌聲中喧叫著呢。   
   讓我只是靜听著吧。                       
  my wishes are fools, they shout across thy song, my master.
  let me but listen.
              20                   
   我不能選擇那最好的。                      
   是那最好的選擇我。                       
  i cannot choose the best.
  the best chooses me.
              21                   
   那些把燈背在背上的人,把他們的影子投到了自己前面。       
  they throw their shadows before them who carry their lantern on
  their back.
              22                   
   我的存在,對我是一個永久的神奇,這就是生活。          
  that i exist is a perpetual surprise which is life.
              23                   
   “我們蕭蕭的樹葉都有聲響回答那風和雨。你是誰呢,那樣的沉默著?”
   “我不過是一朵花。”                      we, the rustling leaves, have a voice that answers the storms,
  but who are you so silent?"i am a mere flower.
              24                   
   休息与工作的關系,正如眼瞼与眼睛的關系。            
  rest belongs to the work as the eyelids to the eyes.
              25                   
   人是一個初生的孩子,他的力量,就是生長的力量。         
  man is a born child, his power is the power of growth.
              26                   
   神希望我們酬答他,在于他送給我們的花朵,而不在于太陽和土地。  
  god expects answers for the flowers he sends us, not for the sun
  the earth.
              27                   
   光明如一個裸体的孩子,快快活活地在綠葉當中游戲,它不知道人是會欺詐的。                                
  the light that plays, like a naked child, among the green leaves
  happily knows not that man can lie.
              28                   
   啊,美呀,在愛中找你自己吧,不要到你鏡子的諂諛去找尋。
  o beauty, find thyself in love, not in the flattery of thy mirror.
              29                   
   我的心把她的波浪在世界的海岸上沖激著,以熱淚在上邊寫著她的題記:“我愛你。”                             
  my heart beats her waves at the shore of the world and writes upon
  it her signature in tears with the words, "i love thee."
              30                   
   “月儿呀,你在等候什么呢?”                  
   “向我將讓位給他的太陽致敬。”                 moon, for what do you wait?to salute the sun for whom i must make way.
              31                   
   綠樹長到了我的窗前,仿佛是喑啞的大地發出的渴望的聲音。
  the trees come up to my window like the yearning voice of the dumb earth.
              32                   
   神自己的清晨,在他自己看來也是新奇的。             
  his own mornings are new surprises to god.
              33                   
   生命從世界得到資產,愛情使它得到价值。             
  life finds its wealth by the claims of the world, and its worth
  by the claims of love.
              34                   
   枯竭的河床,并不感謝它的過去。                 
  the dry river-bed finds no thanks for its past.
              35                   
   鳥儿愿為一朵云。                        
   云儿愿為一只鳥。                        
  the bird wishes it were a cloud.
  the cloud wishes it were a bird.
              36                   
   瀑布歌唱道:“我得到自由時便有了歌聲了。”           
  the waterfall sing, "i find my song, when i find my freedom."
              37                   
   我說不出這心為什么那樣默默地頹喪著。              
   是為了它那不曾要求,不曾知道,不曾記得的小小的需要。      
  i cannot tell why this heart languishes in silence.
  it is for small needs it never asks, or knows or remembers.
              38                   
   婦人,你在料理家務的時候,你的手足歌唱著,正如山間的溪水歌唱著在小石中流過。                             
  woman, when you move about in your household service your limbs sing
  like a hill stream among its pebbles.
              39                   
   當太陽橫過西方的海面時,對著東方留下他的最后的敬禮。      
  the sun goes to cross the western sea, leaving its last salutation
  to the east.
              40                   
   不要因為你自己沒有胃口而去責備你的食物。   
  do not blame your food because you have no appetite.
              41                    
   群樹如表示大地的愿望似的,踮起腳來向天空窺望。    
  the trees, like the longings of the earth, stand atiptoe to peep
  at the heaven.
              42                    
   你微微地笑著,不同我說什么話。而我覺得,為了這個,我已等待得久了。
  you smiled and talked to me of nothing and i felt that for this
  i had been waiting long.
              43                    
   水里的游魚是沉默的,陸地上的獸類是喧鬧的,空中的飛鳥是歌唱著的。 
   但是,人類卻兼有海里的沉默,地上的喧鬧与空中的音樂。       
  the fish in the water is silent, the animal on the earth is noisy,
  the bird in the air is singing.
  but man has in him the silence of the sea, the noise of the earth and
  the music of the air.
              44                    
   世界在躊躇之心的琴弦上跑過去,奏出憂郁的樂聲。          
  the world rushes on over the strings of the lingering heart making
  the music of sadness.
              45                    
   他把他的刀劍當作他的上帝。                    
   當他的刀劍胜利的時候他自己卻失敗了。               
  he has made his weapons his gods.
  when his weapons win he is defeated himself.
              46                    
   神從創造中找到他自己。                      
  god finds himself by creating.
              47                    
   陰影戴上她的面幕,秘密地,溫順地,用她的沉默的愛的腳步,跟在“光”后邊。                                 
  shadow, with her veil drawn, follows light in secret meekness,
  with her silent steps of love.
              48                    
   群星不怕顯得象螢火那樣。                     
  the stars are not afraid to appear like fireflies.
              49                    
   謝謝神,我不是一個權力的輪子,而是被壓在這輪子下的活人之一。   
  i thank thee that i am none of the wheels of power but i am one with
  the living creatures that are crushed by it.
              50                    
   心是尖銳的,不是寬博的,它執著在每一點上,卻并不活動。      
  the mind, sharp but not broad, sticks at every point but does not move.
              51                    
   你的偶像委散在塵土中了,這可證明神的塵土比你的偶像還偉大。    
  you idol is shattered in the dust to prove that god's dust is greater
  than your idol.
              52                    
   人不能在他的歷史中表現出他自己,他在歷史中奮斗著露出頭角。    
  man does not reveal himself in his history, he struggles up through it.
              53                    
   玻璃燈因為瓦燈叫它做表兄而責備瓦燈。但明月出來時,玻璃
   燈卻溫和地微笑著,叫明月為---“我親愛的,親愛的姐姐。”    
  while the glass lamp rebukes the earthen for calling it cousin the
  moon rises, and the glass lamp, with a bland smile, calls her,---my dear, dear sister.
              54                    
   我們如海鷗之与波濤相遇似地,遇見了,走近了。海鷗飛去,波濤滾滾地流開,我們也分別了。                           
  like the meeting of the seagulls and the waves we meet and come near.
  the seagulls fly off, the waves roll away and we depart.
              55                    
   我的白晝已經完了,我象一只泊在海灘上的小船,諦听著晚潮跳舞的樂聲。                                 
  my day is done, and i am like a boat drawn on the beach, listening to
  the dance-music of the tide in the evening.
              56                    
   我們的生命是天賦的,我們惟有獻出生命,才能得到生命。       
  life is given to us, we earn it by giving it.
              57                    
   當我們是大為謙卑的時候,便是我們最接近偉大的時候。        
  we come nearest to the great when we are great in humility.
              58                    
   麻雀看見孔雀負擔著它的翎尾,替它擔憂。           
  the sparrow is sorry for the peacock at the burden of its tail.
              59                    
   決不要害怕剎那--永琱岐n這樣唱著。               
  never be afraid of the moments--thus sings the voice of the everlasting.
              60                    
   風于無路之中尋求最短之路,又突然地在“無何有之國”終之了它的追求。
  the hurricane seeks the shortest road by the no-road, and suddenly ends
  its search in the nowhere.
              61                    
   在我自己的杯中,飲了我的酒吧,朋友。               
   一倒在別人的杯里,這酒的騰跳的泡沫便要消失了。          
  take my wine in my own cup, friend.
  it loses its wreath of foam when poured into that of others.
              62                    
   “完全”為了對“不全”的愛,把自己裝飾得美麗。          
  the perfect decks itself in beauty for the love of the imperfect.
              63                    
   神對人說:“我醫治你所以傷害你,愛你所以懲罰你。”        
  god says to man, "i heal you therefore i hurt, love you therefore punish."
              64                    
   謝謝火焰給你光明,但是不要忘了那執燈的人,他是堅忍地站在黑暗當中呢。
  thank the flame for its light, but do not forget the lampholder
  standing in the shade with constancy of patience.
              65                    
   小草呀,你的足步雖小,但是你擁有你足下的土地。          
  tiny grass, your steps are small, but you possess the earth under
  your tread.
              66                    
   幼花的蓓蕾開放了,它叫道:“親愛的世界呀,請不要萎謝了。”
  the infant flower opens its bud and cries, "dear world, please do not
  fade."
              67                    
   神對于那些大帝國會感到厭惡,卻決不會厭惡那些小小的花朵。     
  god grows weary of great kingdoms, but never of little flowers.
              68                    
   錯誤經不起失敗,但是真理卻不怕失敗。               
  wrong cannot afford defeat but right can.
              69                    
   瀑布歌唱道:“雖然渴者只要少許的水便夠了,我卻很快活地給与了我的全部的水。                                i give my whole water in joy,
  it is enough for the thirsty.
              70                    
   把那些花朵拋擲上去的那一陣子無休無止的狂歡大喜的勁儿,其源泉是在哪里呢?                                 
  where is the fountain that throws up these flowers in a ceaseless
  outbreak of ecstasy?
              71                    
   樵夫的斧頭,問樹要斧柄。                  
   樹便給了他。                           
  the woodcutter's axe begged for its handle from the tree.
  the tree gave it.
              72                    
   這寡獨的黃昏,幕著霧与雨,我在我的心的孤寂里,感覺到它的歎息。  
  in my solitude of heart i feel the sigh of this widowed evening veiled
  with mist and rain.
              73                    
   貞操是從丰富的愛情中生出來的財富。                
  chastity is a wealth that comes from abundance of love.
              74                    
   霧,象愛情一樣,在山峰的心上游戲,生出种种美麗的變幻。      
  the mist, like love, plays upon the heart of the hills and bring out
  surprises of beauty.
              75                    
   我們把世界看錯了,反說它欺騙我們。                
  we read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.
              76                    
   詩人--飆風,正出經海洋森林,追求它自己的歌聲。   
  the poet wind is out over the sea and the forest to seek his own voice.
              77                    
   每一個孩子出生時都帶來信息說:神對人并未灰心失望。        
  every child comes with the message that god is not yet discouraged of man.
              78                    
   綠草求她地上的伴侶。                       
   樹木求他天空的寂寞。                       
  the grass seeks her crowd in the earth.
  the tree seeks his solitude of the sky.
              79                    
   人對他自己建筑起堤防來。                     
  man barricades against himself.
              80                    
   我的朋友,你的語聲飄蕩在我的心里,象那海水的低吟聲繞繚在靜听著的松林之間。                          
  your voice, my friend, wanders in my heart, like the muffled sound
  of the sea among these listening pines.
              81                    
   這個不可見的黑暗之火焰,以繁星為其火花的,到底是什么呢?     
  what is this unseen flame of darkness whose sparks are the stars?
              82                    
   使生如夏花之絢爛,死如秋葉之靜美。                
  let life be beautiful like summer flowers and death like autumn leaves.
              83                    
   那想做好人的,在門外敲著門;那愛人的看見門敞開著。       
  he who wants to do good knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the
  gate open.
              84                    
   在死的時候,眾多和而為一;在生的時候,一化為眾多。        
   神死了的時候,宗教便將合而為一。                 
  in death the many becomes one; in life the one becomes many.
  religion will be one when god is dead.
              85                    
   藝術家是自然的情人,所以他是自然的奴隸,也是自然的主人。     
  the artist is the lover of nature, therefore he is her slave and her
  master.
              86                    
   “你离我有多遠呢,果實呀?”                   
   “我藏在你心里呢,花呀。”                    how far are you from me, o fruit?i am hidden in your heart, o flower.
              87                    
   這個渴望是為了那個在黑夜里感覺得到,在大白天里卻看不見的人。   
  this longing is for the one who is felt in the dark, but not seen
  in the day.
              88                    
   露珠對湖水說道;“你是在荷葉下面的大露珠,我是在荷葉上面的較小的露珠。”                                 you are the big drop of dew under the lotus leaf, i am the smaller
  one on its upper side," said the dewdrop to the lake.
              89                    
   刀鞘保護刀的鋒利,它自己則滿足于它的遲鈍。            
  the scabbard is content to be dull when it protects the keenness of
  the sword.
              90                    
   在黑暗中,“一”視如一体;在光亮中,“一”便視如眾多。      在靜听著的松林之間。                          
  in darkness the one appears as uniform; in the light the one appears
  as manifold.
              91                    
   大地借助于綠草,顯出她自己的殷勤好客。              
  the great earth makes herself hospitable with the help of the grass.
              92                    
   綠葉的生与死乃是旋風的急驟的旋轉,它的更廣大的旋轉的圈子乃是在天上繁星之間徐緩的轉動。                          
  the birth and death of the leaves are the rapid whirls of the eddy
  whose wider circles move slowly among stars.
              93                    
   權勢對世界說道:“你是我的。”                  
   世界便把權勢囚禁在她的寶座下面。                 
   愛情對世界說道:“我是你的。”                  
   世界便給予愛情以在它屋內來往的自由。               
  power said to the world, "you are mine."
  the world kept it prisoner on her throne.
  love said to the world, "i am thine."
  the world gave it the freedom of her house.
              94                    
   濃霧仿佛是大地的愿望。                      
   它藏起了太陽,而太陽原是她所呼求的。               
  the mist is like the earth's desire.
  it hides the sun for whom she cries.
              95                    
   安靜些吧,我的心,這些大樹都是祈禱者呀。             
  be still, my heart, these great trees are prayers.
              96                    
   瞬刻的喧聲,譏笑著永琲滬絳痋C                  
  the noise of the moment scoffs at the music of the eternal.
              97                    
   我想起了浮泛在生与愛与死的川流上的許多別的時代,以及這些時代之被遺忘,我便感覺到离開塵世的自由了。                    
  i think of other ages that floated upon the stream of life and love
  and death and are forgotten, and i feel the freedom of passing away.
              98                    
   我靈魂里的憂郁就是她的新婚的面紗。                
   這面紗等候著在夜間卸去。                     
  the sadness of my soul is her bride's veil.
  it waits to be lifted in the night.
              99                    
   死之印記給生的錢幣以价值,使它能夠用生命來購買那真正的寶物。   
  death's stamp gives value to the coin of life; making it possible
  to buy with life what is truly precious.
             100                    
   白云謙遜地站在天之一隅。                     
   晨光給它戴上霞彩。                        
  the cloud stood humbly in a corner of the sky.
  the morning crowned it with splendour.
              101                   
   塵土受到損辱,卻以她的花朵來報答。                
  the dust receives insult and in return offers her flowers.
              102                   
   只管走過去,不必逗留著采了花朵來保存,因為一路上花朵自會繼續開放的。
  do not linger to gather flowers to keep them, but walk on,
  for flowers will keep themselves blooming all your way.
              103                   
   根是地下的枝。                          
   枝是空中的根。                          
  roots are the branches down in the earth.
  branches are roots in the air.
              104                   
   遠遠去了的夏之音樂,翱翔于秋間,尋求它的舊壘。          
  the music of the far-away summer flutters around the autumn seeking
  its former nest.
              105                   
   不要從你自己的袋里掏出勳績借給你的朋友,這是污辱他的。      
  do not insult your friend by lending him merits from your own pocket.
              106                   
   無名的日子的感触,攀緣在我的心上,正象那綠色的苔蘚,攀緣在老樹的周身。                            
  the touch of the nameless days clings to my heart like mosses round
  the old tree.
              107                   
   回聲嘲笑她的原聲,以證明她是原聲。                
  the echo mocks her origin to prove she is the original.
              108                   
   當富貴利達的人夸說他得到神的特別恩惠時,上帝卻羞了。       
  god is ashamed when the prosperous boasts of his special favour.
              109                   
   我投射我自己的影子在我的路上,因為我有一盞還沒有燃點起來的明燈。 
  i cast my own shadow upon my path, because i have a lamp that has not
  been lighted.
              110                   
   人走進喧嘩的群眾里去,為的是要淹沒他自己的沉默的呼號。      
   man goes into the noisy crowed to drown his own clamour of silence.
              111                   
   終止于衰竭是“死亡”,但“圓滿”卻終止于無窮。          
  that which ends in exhaustion is death, but the perfect ending is
  in the endless.
              112                   
   太陽只穿一件朴素的光衣,白云卻披了燦爛的裙裾。      
  the sun has his simple rode of light. the clouds are decked with
  gorgeousness.
              113                   
   山峰如群儿之喧嚷,舉起他們的雙臂,想去捉天上的星星。       
  the hills are like shouts of children who raise their arms, trying
  to catch stars.
              114                   
   道路雖然擁擠,卻是寂寞的,因為它是不被愛的。           
  the road is lonely in its crowd for it is not loved.
              115                   
   權勢以它的惡行自夸,落下的黃葉与浮游的云片卻在笑它。       
  the power that boasts of its mischiefs is laughed at by the yellow
  leaves that fall, and clouds that pass by.
              116                   
   今天大地在太陽光里向我營營哼鳴,象一個織著布的婦人,用一种已經被忘卻的語言,哼著一些古代的歌曲。                     
  the earth hums to me today in the sun, like a woman at her spinning,
  some ballad of the ancient time in a forgotten tongue.
              117                   
   綠草是無愧于它所生長的偉大世界的。                
  the grass-blade is worthy of the great world where it grows.
              118                   
   夢是一個一定要談話的妻子。                    
   睡眠是一個默默忍受的丈夫。                    
  dream is a wife who must talk,
  sleep is a husband who silently suffers.
              119                   
   夜与逝去的日子接吻,輕輕地在他耳旁說道:“我是死,是你的母親。我就要給你以新的生命。                           
  the night kisses the fading day whispering to his ear, i am death,
  your mother. i am to give you fresh birth.
              120                   
   黑夜呀,我感覺到你的美了。你的美如一個可愛的婦人,當她把燈滅了的時候。                                  
  i feel thy beauty, dark night, like that of the loved woman when
  she has put out the lamp.
              121                   
   我把在那些已逝去的世界上的繁榮帶到我的世界上來。         
  i carry in my world that flourishes the worlds that have failed.
              122                   
   親愛的朋友呀,當我靜听著海濤時,我好几次在暮色深沉的黃昏里,在這個海岸上,感到你的偉大思想的沉默了。                   
  dear friend, i feel the silence of your great thoughts of many a
  deepening eventide on this beach when i listen to these waves.
              123                   
   鳥以為把魚舉在空中是一种慈善的舉動。               
  the bird thinks it is an act of kindness to give the fish a life
  in the air.
              124                   
   夜對太陽說道:“在月亮中,你送了你的情書給我。”         
   “我已在綠草上留下了我的流著淚點的回答了。”           in the moon thou sendest thy love letters to me,i leave my answers in tears upon the grass.
              125                   
   偉人是一個天生的孩子,當他死時,他把他的偉大的孩提時代給了世界。 
  the great is a born child; when he dies he gives his great childhood
  to the world.
              126                   
   不是槌的打擊,乃是水的載歌載舞,使鵝卵石臻于完美。  
  not hammer-strokes, but dance of the water sings the pebbles
  into perfection.
              127                   
   蜜蜂從花中啜蜜,离開時營營地道謝。          
   浮華的蝴蝶卻相信花是應該向它道謝的。               
  bees sip honey from flowers and hum their thanks when they leave.
  the gaudy butterfly is sure that the flowers owe thanks to him.
              128                   
   如果你不等待著要說出完全的真理,那末把真話說出來是很容易的。   
  to be outspoken is easy when you do not wait to speak the complete truth.
              129                   
   “可能”問“不可能”道:                     
   “你住在什么地方呢?”                      
   它回答道:“在那無能為力者的夢境里。”              
  asks the possible to the impossible,
  where is your dwelling-place?
  in the dreams of the impotent, comes the answer.
              130                   
   如果你把所有的錯誤都關在門外時,真理也要被關在門外面了。     
  if you shut your door to all errors truth will be shut out.
               131
   我听見有些東西在我心的憂悶后面蕭蕭作響,--我不能看見它們。
  i hear some rustle of things behind my sadness of heart,
  ---i cannot see them.
               132
   閒暇在動作時便是工作。
   靜止的海水蕩動時便成波濤。
  leisure in its activity is work.
  the stillness of the sea stirs in waves.
               133
   綠葉戀愛時便成了花。
   花崇拜時便成了果實。
  the leaf becomes flower when it loves.
  the flower becomes fruit when it worships.
               134
   埋在地下的樹根使樹枝產生果實,卻不要什么報酬。
  the roots below the earth claim no rewards for making the branches
  fruitful.
               135
   陰雨的黃昏,風無休止地吹著。
   我看著搖曳的樹枝,想念万物的偉大。
  this rainy evening the wind is restless.
  i look at the swaying branches and ponder over the greatness of
  all things.
               136
   子夜的風雨,如一個巨大的孩子,在不合時宜的黑夜里醒來,開始游喜和喧鬧。
  storm of midnight, like a giant child awakened in the untimely dark,
  has begun to play and shout.
               137
   海呀,你這暴風雨的孤寂的新婦呀,你雖掀起波浪追隨你的情人,但是無用呀。
  thou raisest thy waves vainly to follow thy lover, o sea, thou
  lonely bride of the storm.
               138
   文字對工作說道:“我慚愧我的空虛。”
   工作對文字說道:“當我看見你的時,我便知道我是怎樣地貧乏了。”
  i am ashamed of my emptiness, said the word to the work.
  i know how poor i am when i see you, said the work to the word.
               139
   時間是變化的財富。時鐘模仿它,卻只有變化而無財富。
  time is the wealth of change, but the clock in its parody makes
  it mere change and no wealth.
               140
   真理穿了衣裳,覺得事實太拘束了。
   在想象中,她卻轉動得很舒暢。
  truth in her dress finds facts too tight.
  in fiction she moves with ease.
               141
   當我到這里那里旅行著時,路呀,我厭倦你了;當是現在,當你引導我到各處去時我便愛上你,与你結婚了。
  when i travelled to here and to there, i was tired of thee, o road,
  but now when thou leadest me to everywhere i am wedded to thee in love.
               142
   讓我設想,在群星之中,有一顆星是指導著我的生命通過不可知的黑暗的。
  let me think that there is one among those stars that guides my life
  through the dark unknown.
               143
   婦人,你用了你美麗的手指,触著我的什物,秩序便如音樂似的生出來了。
  woman, with the grace of your fingers you touched my things and order
  came out like music.
               144
   一個憂郁的聲音,筑巢于逝水似的年華中。    
   它在夜里向我唱道:“我愛你。”
  one sad voice has its nest among the ruins of the years.
  it sings to me in the night, ---i loved you.
               145
   燃著的火,以它熊熊的光焰警告我不要走近它。
   把我從潛藏在灰中的余燼里救出來吧。
  the flaming fire warns me off by its own glow.
  save me from the dying embers hidden under ashes.
               146
   我有群星在天上,
   但是,唉,我屋里的小燈卻沒有點亮。
  i have my stars in the sky.
  but oh for my little lamp unlit in my house.
               147
   死文字的塵土沾著你。
   用沉默去洗淨你的靈魂吧。
  the dust of the dead words clings to thee.
  wash thy soul with silence.
               148
   生命里留了許多罅隙,從中送來了死之憂郁的音樂。
  gaps are left in life through which comes the sad music of death.
               149
   世界已在早晨敞開了它的光明之心。
   出來吧,我的心,帶著你的愛去与它相會。
  the world has opened its heart of light in the morning.
  come out, my heart, with thy love to meet it.
               150
   我的思想隨著這些閃耀的綠葉而閃耀;我的心靈因了這日光的撫触而歌唱;我的生命因為偕了万物一同浮泛在空間的蔚藍,時間的墨黑而感到歡快*
   my thoughts shimmer with these shimmering leaves and my heart sings
  with the touch of this sunlight; my life is glad to be floating with
  all things into the blue of space, into the dark of time.
               151
   神的巨大的威權是在柔和的微(風思)里,而不在狂風暴雨之中。
  god's great power is in the gentle breeze, not in the storm.
               152
   在夢中,一切事都散漫著,都壓著我,但這不過是一個夢呀。但我醒來時,我便將覺得這些事都已聚集在你那里,我也便將自由了。
  this is a dream in which things are all loose and they oppress.
  i shall find them gathered in thee when i awake and shall be free.
               153
   落日問道:“有誰繼續我的職務呢?”
   瓦燈說道:“我要盡我所能地做去,我的主人。”
  who is there to take up my duties? asked the setting sun.
  i shall do what i can, my master, said the earthen lamp.
               154
   采著花瓣時,得不到花的美麗。
  by plucking her petals you do not gather the beauty of the flower.
               155
   沉默蘊蓄著語聲,正如鳥巢擁圍著睡鳥。
  silence will carry your voice like the nest that holds the sleeping birds.
               156
   大的不怕与小的同游。
   居中的卻遠而避之。
  the great walks with the small without fear.
  the middling keeps aloof.
               157
   夜秘密地把花開放了,卻讓白日去領受謝詞。
  the night opens the flowers in secret and allows the day to get thanks.
               158
   權勢認為犧牲者的痛苦是忘恩負義。
  power takes as ingratitude the writhings of its victims.
               159
   當我們以我們的充實為樂時,那末,我們便能很快樂地跟我們的果實分手了。
  when we rejoice in our fulness, then we can part with our fruits with joy.
               160
   雨點吻著大地,微語道:“我們是你的思家的孩子,母親,現在從天上回到你這里來了。”
  the raindrops kissed the earth and whispered, --- we are thy homesick
  children, mother, come back to thee from the heaven.
               161
   蛛网好象要捉露點,卻捉住了蒼蠅。
  the cobweb pretends to catch dewdrops and catches flies.
               162
   愛情呀,當你手里拿著點亮了的痛苦之燈走來時,我能夠看見你的臉,而且以你為幸福。
  love! when you come with the burning lamp of pain in your hand,

   當我死時,世界呀,請在你的沉默中,替我留著“我已經愛過了”這句話吧。
  one word keep for me in thy silence, o world, when i am dead,i have loved.
               278
   我們在熱愛世界時便生活在這世界上。
  we live in this world when we love it.
               279
   讓死者有那不朽的名,但讓生者有那不朽的愛。
  let the dead have the immortality of fame, but the living the
  immortality of love.
               280
   我看見你,象那半醒的嬰孩在黎明的微光里看見他的母親,于是微笑而又睡去了。
  i have seen thee as the half-awakened child sees his mother in the
  dusk of the dawn and then smiles and sleeps again.
               281
   我將死了又死,以明白生是無窮無盡的。
  i shall die again and again to know that life is inexhaustible.
               282
   當我和擁擠的人群一同在路上走過時,我看見您從陽台上送過來的微笑,我歌唱著,忘卻了所有的喧嘩。
  while i was passing with the crowd in the road i saw thy smile from
  the balcony and i sang and forgot all noise.
               283
   愛就是充實了的生命,正如盛滿了酒的酒杯。
  love is life in its fulness like the cup with its wine.
               284
   他們點了他們自己的燈,在他們的寺院內,吟唱他們自己的話語。
   但是小鳥們卻在你的晨光中,唱著你的名字,--因為你的名字便是快樂。
  they light their own lamps and sing their own words in their temples.
  but the birds sing thy name in thine own morning light, --- for thy
  name is joy.
               285
   領我到您的沉寂的中心,使我的心充滿了歌吧。
  lead me in the centre of thy silence to fill my heart with songs.
               286
   讓那些選擇了他們自己的焰火絲絲的世界的,就生活在那里吧。
   我的心渴望著您的繁星,我的上帝。
  let them live who choose in their own hissing world of fireworks.
  my heart long s for thy stars, my god.
               287
   愛的痛苦環繞著我的一生,象洶涌的大海似地唱;而愛的快樂卻象鳥儿們在話林里似地唱著。
  love's pain sang round my life like the unplumbed sea, and love's joy
  sang like birds in its flowering groves.
               288
   假如您愿意,您就熄了燈吧。
   我將明白您的黑暗,而且將喜愛它。
  put out the lamp when thou wishest.
  i shall know thy darkness and shall love it.
               289
   當我在那日子的終了,站在您的面前時,您將看見我的傷疤,而知道我有我的許多創傷,但也有我的醫治的法儿。
  when i stand before thee at the day s end thou shalt see my scars
  and know that i had my wounds and also my healing.
               290
   總有一天,我要在別的世界的晨光里對你唱道:“我以前在地球的光里,在人的愛里,已經見過你了。”
  some day i shall sing to thee in the sunrise of some other world,i have seen thee before in the light of the earth, in the love of man.
               291
   從別的日子里飄浮道我的生命里的云,不再落下雨點或引起風暴了,卻只給予我的夕陽的天空以色彩。
  clouds come floating into my life from other days no longer to shed
  rain or usher storm but to give colour to my sunset sky.
               292
   真理引起了反對它自己的狂風驟雨,那場風雨吹散了真理的廣播的种子。
  truth raises against itself the storm that scatters its seeds broadcast.
               293
   昨夜的風雨給今日的早晨戴上了金色的和平。
  the storm of the last night has crowned this morning with golden peace.
               294
   真理仿佛帶了它的結論而來;而那結論卻產生了它的第二個。
  truth seems to come with its final word; and the final word gives
  birth to its next.
               295
   他是有福的,因為他的名望并沒有比他的真實更光亮。
  blessed is he whose fame does not outshine his truth.
               296
   您的名字的甜蜜充溢著我的心,而我忘掉了我自己的,--就象您的早晨的太陽升起時,那大霧便消失了。
  sweetness of thy name fills my heart when i forget mine---like
  thy morning sun when the mist is melted.
               297
   靜悄悄的黑夜具有母親的美麗,而吵鬧的白天具有孩子的美麗。
  the silent night has the beauty of the mother and the clamorous day
  of the child.
               298
   但人微笑時,世界愛了他;但他大笑時世界便怕他了。
  the world loved man when he smiled. the world became afraid of him
  when he laughed.
               299
   神等待著人在智慧中重新獲得童年。
  god waits for man to regain his childhood in wisdom.
               300
   讓我感到這個世界乃是您的愛的成形吧,那末,我的愛也將幫助著它。
  let me feel this world as thy love taking form, then my ove will help it.
               301
   您的陽光對著我的心頭的冬天微笑,從來不怀疑它的春天的花朵。
  thy sunshine smiles upon the winter days of my heart, never doubting
  of its spring flowers.
               302
   神在他的愛里吻著“有涯”,而人卻吻著“無涯”。
  god kisses the finite in his love and man the infinite.
               303
   您越過不毛之年的沙漠而到達了圓滿的時刻。
  thou crossest desert lands of barren years to reach the moment of fulfilment.
               304
   神的靜默使人的思想成熟而為語言。
  god's silence ripens man's thoughts into speech.
               305
   “永琲漁客”呀,你可以在我的歌眾找到你的足跡。
  thou wilt find, eternal traveller, marks of thy footsteps across my songs.
               306
   讓我不至羞辱您吧,父親,您在您的孩子們身上顯出您的光榮。
  let me not shame thee, father, who displayest thy glory in thy children.
               307
   這一天是不快活的。光在蹙額的云下,如一個被責打的儿童,灰白的臉上留著淚痕;風又號叫著,似一個受傷的世界的哭聲。但是我知道,我正跋涉著去會我的朋友。
  cheerless is the day, the light under frowning clouds is like a
  punished child with traces of tears on its pale cheeks, and the cry of
  the wind is like the cry of a wounded world. but i know i am travelling
  to meet my friend.
               308
   今天晚上棕櫚葉在嚓嚓地作響,海上有大浪,滿月呵,就象世界在心脈悸跳。從什么不可知的天空,您在您的沉默里帶來了愛的痛苦的秘密?
  tonight there is a stir among the palm leaves, a swell in the sea,
  full moon, like the heart throb of the world. from what unknown sky hast
  thou carried in thy silence the aching secret of love?
               309
   我夢見一顆星,一個光明島嶼,我將在那里出生。在它快速的閒暇深處,我的生命將成熟它的事業,象陽光下的稻田。
  i dream of a star, an island of light, where i shall be born and in
  the depth of its quickening leisure my life will ripen its works like
  the rice-field in the autumn sun.
               310
   雨中的濕土的气息,就響從渺小的無聲的群眾那里來的一陣巨大的贊美歌聲。
  the smell of the wet earth in the rain rises like a great chant of
  praise from the voiceless multitude of the insignificant.
               311
   說愛情會失去的那句話,乃是我們不能夠當作真理來接受的一個事實。
  that love can ever lose is a fact that we cannot accept as truth.
               312
   我們將有一天會明白,死永遠不能夠奪去我們的靈魂所獲得的東西。因為她所獲得的,和她自己是一体。
  we shall know some day that death can never rob us of that which our
  soul has gained, for her gains are one with herself.
               313
   神在我的黃昏的微光中,帶著花到我這里來。這些花都是我過去的,在他的花籃中還保存得很新鮮。
  god comes to me in the dusk of my evening with the flowers from my
  past kept fresh in his basket.
               314
   主呀,當我的生之琴弦都已調得諧和時,你的手的一彈一奏,都可以發出愛的樂聲來。
  when all the strings of my life will be tuned, my master, then at
  every touch of thine will come out the music of love.
               315
   讓我真真實實地活著吧,我的上帝。這樣,死對于我也就成了真實的了。
  let me live truly, my lord, so that death to me become true.
               316
   人類的歷史在很忍耐地等待著被侮辱者的胜利。
  man's history is waiting in patience for the triumph of the insulted man.
               317
   我這一刻感到你的眼光正落在我的心上,象那早晨陽光中的沉默落在已收獲的孤寂的田野上一樣。
  i feel thy gaze upon my heart this moment like the sunny silence of
  the morning upon the lonely field whose harvest is over.
               318
   在這喧嘩的波濤起伏的海中,我渴望著詠歌之鳥。
  i long for the island of songs across this heaving sea of shouts.
               319
   夜的序曲是開始于夕陽西下的音樂,開始于它對難以形容的黑暗所作的庄嚴的贊歌。
  the prelude of the night is commenced in the music of the sunset,
  in its solemn hymn to the ineffable dark.
               320
   我攀登上高峰,發現在名譽的荒蕪不毛的高處,簡直找不到一個遮身之地。我的引導者呵,領導著我在光明逝去之前,進到沉靜的山谷里去吧。在那里,一生的收獲將會成熟為黃金的智慧。
  i have scaled the peak and found no shelter in fame's bleak and barren
  height. lead me, my guide, before the light fades, into the valley of
  quiet where life's harvest mellows into golden wisdom.
               321
   在這個黃昏的朦朧里,好些東西看來都仿佛是幻象一般--尖塔的底層在黑暗里消失了,樹頂象是墨水的模糊的斑點似的。我將等待著黎明,而當我醒來的時候,就會看到在光明里的您的城市。
  things look phantastic in this dimness of the dusk---the spires whose
  bases are lost in the dark and tree tops like blots of ink. i shall wait
  for the morning and wake up to see thy city in the light.
               322
   我曾經受苦過,曾經失望過,曾經体會過“死亡”,于是我以我在這偉大的世界里為樂。
  i have suffered and despaired and known death and i am glad that
  i am in this great world.
               323
   在我的一生里,也有貧乏和沉默的地域;它們是我忙碌的日子得到日光与空气的几片空曠之地。
  there are tracts in my life that are bare and silent. they are the
  open spaces where my busy days had their light and air.
               324
   我的未完成的過去,從后邊纏繞到我身上,使我難于死去。請從它那里釋放了我吧。
  release me from my unfulfilled past clinging to me from behind making
  death difficult.
               325
   “我相信你的愛。”讓這句話做我的最后的話。
  let this be my last word, that i trust thy love.
