鸟鸣溪谷柳鸣春,万类和融释醉痕。骚客登楼临曲水,金威雅集胜兰亭。

斯托基公司·序诗

 

【英】鲁迪亚德·吉卜林 著

威廉·熊良銋 译

 

“我们现在赞美名师”——

他们决不夸耀——

因为他们的事业在继续,

他们的行为在继续,

广泛深入地继续,

比知识更优秀。

 

西风和开阔的浪潮,

让我们远离母亲——

把我们抛到荒凉的海边,

(十二栋阴暗的房舍在海边,

七个夏天在海边!)

与二百兄弟融混。

 

在那里我们遇见名师,

开始就拷问我们;

他们打我们挥动教鞭——

老实说用了许多教鞭——

每天痛打我们用教鞭,

他们是疼爱我们!

 

出埃及奔向特洛伊——

翻越喜马拉雅——

我们的学长已遍及全球——

海博拉西尔或巴比伦,

诸岛在南部洋面,

都市在凯西亚!

 

我们都赞美名师——

那些学院长者;

因为谈们教我们常识——

极力要教我们常识,

真理和上帝的判断,

比知识更难得!

 

每个年级的学生,

都紧张造物主,

他看见我们中的一两个人,

(我们一伙里的任何人),

他的所作所为费尽心机,

热衷他的天职。

 

我们从名师学知识,

    却不知如何使用,

  他们示范是每日的功课——

  每个学生必须完成作业——

对与错是他每日的工作——

没有任何理由。

 

教职工和校规的奴仆,

地雷引子和抓钩——

有的人在列王的面前,

站在列王的面前,

把礼物献给列王,

子弹箱和弹片。

 

我们从名师学知识,

教学在我们边境,

他们声明这是最好的,

最安全最容易最好——

迅速有效睿智最好——-

服从你的命令。

 

有的在更远的星星下,

背负着更大的负担:

开始为他们通知的国家服务,

(除非他为无人统治的地方服务),

热爱和为他们统治的国家服务,

寻求赞美而不是报酬。

 

我们从名师学习这些,

不知道我们学会了。

只知道随着岁月的流逝——

孤独中伴随岁月的流逝——

渺无帮助一任岁月的流逝,

我们看得更清晰。

 

所以我们赞美名师。

我们从哪里借来桂冠——

他们那样扔下今天——

所有的快乐来自今天——

劳苦伴随着今天,

为我们购买明天!

 

“我们祝福赞美名师”——

不张扬炫耀的人——

因为他们的事业在继续,

他们的事业在继续,

广泛深入第继续,

伟大超过他们的知识。

 

(注)海博拉西尔,传说中爱尔兰之西的一个海岛,有时特指亚速尔群岛之一。

      凯西亚,中国。

 

A School Song
Prelude to Stalky & Co.

 

Written by Rudyard Kipling

Translated by William Xiong

 

'Let us now praise famous men' –

Men of little showing -
For their work continueth,
And their work continueth,
Broad and deep continueth,
Greater than their knowing!

Western wind and open surge
Took us from our mothers -
Flung us on a naked shore
(Twelve bleak houses by the shore.
Seven summers by the shore! )
'Mid two hundred brothers.

There we met with famous men
Set in office o'er us;
And they beat on us with rods -
Faithfully with many rods -
Daily beat us on with rods,
For the love they bore us!

Out of Egypt unto Troy -
Over Himalaya -
Far and sure our bands have gone -
Hy-Brazil or Babylon,
Islands of the Southern Run,
And Cities of Cathaia!

And we all praise famous men -
  Ancients of the College;
  For they taught us common sense -
  Tried to teach us common sense
  Truth and God's Own Common Sense,
  Which is more than knowledge!

  Each degree of Latitude
  Strung about Creation
  Seeth one or more of us
  (Of one muster each of us),
  Diligent in that he does,
  Keen in his vocation.

  This we learned from famous men,
  Knowing not its uses,
  When they showed, in daily work -
  Man must finish off his work -
  Right or wrong, his daily work -
  And without excuses.


  Servant of the Staff and chain,
  Mine and fuse and grapnel -
  Some, before the face of Kings,
  Stand before the face of Kings;
  Bearing gifts to divers Kings -
  Gifts of case and shrapnel.
 

This we learned from famous men
  Teaching in our borders,
  Who declared it was best,
  Safest, easiest, and best -
  Expeditious, wise, and best -
  To obey your orders.

  Some beneath the further stars
  Bear the greater burden:
  Set to serve the lands they rule,
  (Save he serve no man may rule ),
  Serve and love the lands they rule;
  Seeking praise nor guerdon.

  This we learned from famous men,
  Knowing not we learned it.
  Only, as the years went by -
  Lonely, as the years went by -
  Far from help as years went by,
  Plainer we discerned it.
 
  Wherefore praise we famous men
  From whose bays we borrow -
  They that put aside To-day -
  All the joys of their To-day -
  And with toil of their To-day
  Bought for us To-morrow!

  Bless and praise we famous men -
  Men of little showing -
  For their work continueth,
  And their work continueth,
  Broad and deep continueth,
  Great beyond their knowing!

 

Notes: Hy-Brazil, legendary island west of Ireland, in the Atlantic,sometimes identified with one of the Azores.

Cathaia, China - more usually 'Cathay'.
