Two Poems 詩兩首

 

來源:http://www.englishfree.com.cn/tw/nTraining/ReadLesson.asp?Lesson=MD207

 

Sympathy, the sharing of another's sorrow or trouble, means a lot in our daily life.

同情,也就是分擔別人的悲傷與煩惱,在我們日常生活中意義很重大。

In the first poem the writer tells us of her belief in this truth in simple words and phrases.

第一首詩,作者用簡單的字和片語,對我們訴說她對這種真理的信仰。

In the second poem the poet expresses his pity for a rabbit caught in a snare, and pictures the poor terrified figure of the animal.

第二首詩,詩人表達他同情一隻被陷阱捉住的兔子,並且描寫這隻動物受驚的可憐形態。

In both poems you will find the rhythm and rhyme well-organized.

在這兩首詩裡面,你將會發現節奏與押韻很有組織。

 

1  If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking

 

“如果我能…”

If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain;

如果我能使人免於心碎,則此生不虛度;

If I can ease one life the aching,Or cool one pain,Or help one fainting robinUnto his nest again,I shall not live in vain.

如果我能減輕一個人的疼痛,或止息一個人的痛苦,或幫助一隻昏厥的知更鳥重回他的窩巢,則此生不虛度。

Emily Dickinson

2  The Snare

 

The Snare

陷阱

I hear a sudden cry of pain!There is a rabbit in a snare;Now I hear the cry again,But I cannot tell from where.

突然聽到痛叫聲!原來是兔子掉入陷阱;又是痛叫聲一陣,但是來自何處無法分清。

But I cannot tell from whereHe is calling out for aid;Crying on the frightened air,Making everything afraid.

但我無法分清是何處,兔子在大聲呼救;驚恐的痛苦叫聲,使得一切令人心驚。

Making everything afraidWrinkling up his little face,As he cries again for aid;And I cannot find the place!

使得一切令人心驚,皺起小小的臉龐,他再度呼救;而我卻無處可尋!

And I cannot find the placeWhere his paw is in the snare;Little one! Oh, little one!I am searching everywhere.

而我卻無處可尋,何處的陷阱困住他的腳掌;小東西啊!小東西!我處處在找你!
