書摘

01. 家 THE HOME
I paced alone on the road across the field while the sunset was hiding its last gold like a miser.
The daylight sank deeper and deeper into the darkness, and the widowed land, whose harvest had been reaped, lay silent.
Suddenly a boy's shrill voice rose into the sky. He traversed the dark unseen, leaving the track of his song across the hush of the evening.
His village home lay there at the end of the waste land, beyond the sugar-cane field, hidden among the shadows of the banana and the slender areca palm, the cocoa-nut and the dark green jack-fruit trees.
I stopped for a moment in my lonely way under the starlight, and saw spread before me the darkened earth surrounding with her arms countless homes furnished with cradles and beds, mothers' hearts and evening lamps, and young lives glad with a gladness that knows nothing of its value for the world.

我獨自漫步在穿過田野的小徑上,夕陽像個守財奴,正藏起它最後一塊金子。
白晝逐漸沒入更深沉的黑暗中,而那已收割的寂地,靜靜躺在那兒。
頃時間,有個男孩的高亢歌聲響入雲霄。他穿過看不見的黑幕,讓歌聲音韻迴盪在夜晚的寂靜中。
他村裡的家就坐落這塊荒地底端,甘蔗園後邊,隱藏在芭蕉、瘦長的檳榔樹、椰子樹和深綠色波羅蜜果樹影裡。
我在星空下的寂路上佇立了一會兒,看著暗沉的大地於我面前展開,用她的雙臂攬抱無數個家庭,那裡有搖籃和床,有母親的心和夜燈,還有滿心歡喜的年輕生命,渾然不知這歡樂對世界的價值。

 

02. 海邊 ON THE SEASHORE
On the seashore of endless worlds children meet.
The infinite sky is motionless overhead and the restless water is boisterous. On the seashore of endless worlds the children meet with shouts and dances.
They build their houses with sand, and they play with empty shells. With withered leaves they weave their boats and smilingly float them on the vast deep. Children have their play on the seashore of worlds.
They know not how to swim, they know not how to cast nets. Pearl-fishers dive for pearls, merchants sail in their ships, while children gather pebbles and scatter them again. They seek not for hidden treasures, they know not how to cast nets.
The sea surges up with laughter, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach. Death-dealing waves sing meaningless ballads to the children, even like a mother while rocking her baby's cradle. The sea plays with children, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach.
On the seashore of endless worlds children meet. Tempest roams in the pathless sky, ships are wrecked in the trackless water, death is abroad and children play. On the seashore of endless worlds is the great meeting of children.

孩子們在無垠世界的海邊相聚。
遼闊無邊的穹蒼凝止於頭頂,奔流不息的海水喧嚷不休。孩子們在無垠世界的海邊相聚,叫著、舞著。
他們拿沙造房子、拿空貝殼玩耍。他們拿落葉編織成船,笑著將之放入大海。孩子們在這世界的海邊嬉遊著。
他們不知如何游泳,也不知如何撒網。採珠人潛入海裡採珠,商人駛著他們的船航行,而孩子們只是撿拾起小石頭,又將之拋出。他們不去追尋寶藏,也不知如何撒網。
大海歡笑著捲起浪花,海灘的微笑閃耀著淡淡光芒。洶湧險惡的海浪對孩子們吟唱著無意義的歌曲,就像母親輕推著她孩子的搖籃那樣。大海陪孩子們玩耍,海灘的微笑閃耀著淡淡光芒。
孩子們在無垠世界的海邊相聚。狂風暴雨掃過無痕的天空,船隻沉碎在無痕的大海,死亡將近,而孩子們還在玩耍。孩子們在無垠世界的海邊,歡樂地齊聚一處。
