丹麦女竖琴之歌

——骑士快乐历险记·篇首诗

 

【英】鲁迪亚德·吉卜林 著

                熊良銋 译

 

你为何要抛弃她一个妇人,

家园的庇护,炉灶的温存,

去追随制造寡妇的老朽昏君?

 

她没有豪宅可以款待宾客——

只有一张凉床供人们安歇,

残阳和流冰在这里共度寒夜。

 

她的玉臂柔弱无力将你拥抱,

却有十倍手指长的温情将你缠绕,

在潮水会把你卷走的悬崖,把你栓牢。

 

然而,当夏之气息越来越浓;

桦树开始发芽,冰川加速破冻,

一年一度你转身离开我们去发疯——

 

又一次疯狂鼓吹着叫嚣和杀戮——

你偷偷溜走来到平明的水域,

观望着你的舰队停泊在越冬营区。

 

你忘了我们的欢乐和宴饮佳话,

忘了牛棚里的牛和马厩里的马——

投奔到她身旁,受她的羁縻管押!

 

然后你陷入了暴风雨的漩涡:

你的划桨声渐渐远去空留落索,

只剩下我们月复一月的无可奈何。

 

哎,你为何要抛弃她一个妇人,

家园的庇护,炉灶的温存,

去追随制造寡妇的老朽昏君?

Harp Song of the Dane Women

——A Poem before The Knights of the Joyous Venture

 

Written by Rudyard Kipling

Translated by Liangren Xiong

 

What is a woman that you forsake her,

And the hearth-fire and the home-acre,

To go with the old grey Widow-maker?

 

She has no house to lay a guest in-

But one chill bed for all to rest in,

That the pale suns and the stray bergs nest in.

 

She has no strong white arms to fold you,

But the ten-times-fingering weed to hold you

Bound on the rocks where the tide has rolled you.

 

Yet, when the signs of summer thicken,

And the ice breaks, and the birch-buds quicken,

Yearly you turn from our side, and sicken —

 

Sicken again for the shouts and the slaughters,

You steal away to the lapping waters,

And look at your ship in her winter quarters.

 

You forget our mirth, and talk at the tables,

The kine in the shed and the horse in the stables —

To pitch her sides and go over her cables!

 

Then you drive out where the storm-clouds swallow:

And the sound of your oar-blades falling hollow,

Is all we have left through the months to follow!

 

Ah, what is Woman that you forsake her,

And the hearth-fire and the home-acre,

To go with the old grey Widow-maker?
