W.S.默温的诗(5首)

◎呐石



为我的亡故纪念日而作

每年我度过这一天,无知无觉
当最后的火焰向我挥手
寂静启程
不倦的旅者
好似暗星的光束

我将不再看见自己
在世间,如同穿着奇异的衣服
惊讶地审视大地
一个女人的爱
以及男人们的寡耻
如同连雨三日后,今天写作时
听见鹪鹩歌唱,绵雨歇止
我躬身,却莫明所向

For The Anniversary Of My Death-----by William Stanley Merwin

Every year without knowing it I have passed the day 
When the last fires will wave to me   
And the silence will set out  
Tireless traveller 
Like the beam of a lightless star 

Then I will no longer  
Find myself in life as in a strange garment 
Surprised at the earth  
And the love of one woman  
And the shamelessness of men  
As today writing after three days of rain 
Hearing the wren sing and the falling cease 
And bowing not knowing to what  


别离

你的离去穿过我
如丝线穿过一根针。
我的所为均缝缀着它的颜色。

Separation-----by William Stanley Merwin

Your absence has gone through me   
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.




我手中的星子
在坠落

何为无用,有共识

我愿向自然规律俯首
而非她的走卒

Wish-----by William Stanley Merwin

The star in my     
Hand is falling      

All the uniforms know what's no use  

May I bow to Necessity not 
To her hirelings                      


冬日黄昏

夕阳孤独地沉入冷寂,
终究为我们付出了一切,无愧。 
它沉下去,相信空无。
当它消失时,我听见溪水奔流不舍。
长路漫漫,它自带长笛。    

Dusk in Winter-----by William Stanley Merwin

The sun sets in the cold without friends,                   
Without reproaches after all it has done for us.      
It goes down believing in nothing.                       
When it has gone I hear the stream running after it.  
It has brought its flute it is a long way.   


距离

当你想到距离
你忆起
我们是不朽的

你想起它们始于我们
它们所有都始于
我们
无一消亡,也无一被淡忘

世界上遍有雌兽
仰躺着
思念着大海
 

The Distances-----by William Stanley Merwin

When you think of the distances      
you recall                                     
that we are immortal                      

you think of them setting out from us   
all of them setting out                     
from us                                         
and none dies and none is forgotten     

and all over the world there are dams 
lying on their backs                           
thinking of the sea
