长篇叙事童话诗《魔哥超市》连载(三)

 

Goblin Market

 

by  C. G. Rossetti

 

Laura stretched her gleaming neck

Like a rush-imbedded swan,

Like a lily from the beck,

Like a moonlit poplar branch,

Like a vessel at the launch

When its last restraint is gone.

 

Backwards up the mossy glen

Turned and trooped the goblin men,

With their thrill repeated cry,

“Come buy, come buy. ”

When they reached where Laura was

They stood stock still upon the moss,

Leering at each other,

Brother with queer brother

Signaling each other,

Brother with sly brother.

One set his basket down,

One reared his plate;

One began to weave a crown

Of tendrils, leaves, and rough nuts brown

(Men sell not such in any town),

One heaved the golden weight

Of dish and fruit to offer her;

“Come buy, come buy.” was still their cry.

Laura stared but did not stir,

Longed but had no money:

The whisk-tailed merchant bade her taste

In tones as smooth as honey,

The cat-faced purr’d,

The rat-paced spoke a word

Of welcome, and the snail-paced even was heard;

One parrot-voiced and jolly

Cried “Pretty Goblin” still for “Pretty Polly.;” ——

One whistled like a bird.

 

魔哥超市

 

【英】克·吉·罗塞蒂


萝拉伸长她闪光的颈脖,
像一只冲向长空的天鹅,
像一朵来自幽涧的百合,
像月光照耀下的杨树枝,
像即将首航的一艘海轮,
当它最后的缆索被斩断。

回到长满苔藓的峡谷上,

魔哥们转过身结队成排,
重复着他们尖细的叫卖声,
来买呀,快来买。
当他们来到萝拉逗留的地方,

木桩般仍然站立在青苔上,
他们互相挤眉睥睨,

视怪异的同伙为兄弟;
他们互相点头示意,

视奸狡的同伙为兄弟。
一个放下他的篮子,
另一个举起他的盘子;
还有一个开始编织一顶花冠,
用龙须草、树叶和褐色的棘蔓,
在镇上,人们不会卖这种破烂;
有一个鼓弄着沉甸甸的花篮,
把碟子和水果送她面前:
来买吧,快来买,依旧的叫喊。
萝拉瞪大眼睛但没敢乱动,
内心渴望口袋里却没有钱:
那个摆尾巴的贩子邀她品尝,
语调悦耳比蜜糖还甜,

猫脸魔哥也咕噜了一通,

迈鼠步的那位忙说“欢迎,”

像蜗牛爬的魔哥也来奉承;
这一个鹦鹉般嗓音的快活地喊道,
可爱的魔哥就是可爱的鹦波;”——
那一个尖声细嗓鸣啭像只小鸟。
