赫尔.布鲁克纳((Anton,1824-1896,奥地利作曲家,管风琴家))
经常闲逛进教堂
加入到葬礼上哀悼的人中。
伯辽兹(Louis Hector,1803-1869,法国作曲家)的亲戚们吓坏了。
“这样的和谐,”莎士比亚言道,“在
不朽的灵魂中...我们不能听到。”但
收音机正播放着,外面
雨点溅到人行道上。偶尔
播放故障。像这样的夜里,舒曼
会看见闪电飞奔过他的窗格。

外面,雨落到人行道上。
一片纸翻滚到街上。
在下雨的傍晚,舒曼匆匆记下
他窗格上的旋律。“这样的和谐!我们
不能听到。”收音机的声音时断时续。
在彩排上古斯塔夫.霍尔斯特大声说,
“我厌倦了音乐,尤其是我自己的!”
伯辽兹的亲戚们吓坏了。
海顿的妻子使用音乐填塞点心烤模。

下雨的夜里,门德尔松的幽灵
把旋律带给要作曲的舒曼。
“这样的和谐在不朽的灵魂中...我们听不到”
人们会猜想赫尔.布鲁克纳可能微笑了。在泰格塞
农民们站着听年轻的帕格尼尼演奏,
但这时电闪雷鸣。
收音机的声音时断时续。雨点落到
人行道上像鼓掌声。

一片纸翻滚到街上。
下雨的傍晚,舒曼会望着窗外
在他小室的窗子上潦草记下。
伯辽兹的亲戚们都吓坏了
看见马儿突然挣脱送葬队伍
带着他的棺材飞奔到墓地。
李斯特听见老帕格尼尼演奏潸然泪下。
海顿的妻子使用音乐填塞点心烤模。
Herr Bruckner often wandered into church
to join the mourners at a funeral.
The relatives of Berlioz were horrified.
“Such harmony,” quoth Shakespeare, “is in
immortal souls …. We cannot hear it.” But
the radio is playing, and outside
rain splashes to the pavement. Now and then
the broadcast fails. On nights like these Schumann
would watch the lightning streak his windowpanes.

Outside the rain is falling on the pavement.
A scrap of paper tumbles down the street.
On rainy evenings Schumann jotted down
his melodies on windowpanes. “Such harmony!
We cannot hear it.” The radio goes off and on.
At the rehearsal Gustav Holst exclaimed,
“I’m sick of music, especially my own!”
The relatives of Berlioz were horrified.
Haydn’s wife used music to line pastry pans.

On rainy nights the ghost of Mendelssohn
brought melodies for Schumann to compose.
“Such harmony is in immortal souls ….
We cannot hear it.” One could suppose
Herr Bruckner would have smiled. At Tegernsee
the peasants stood to hear young Paganini play,
but here there’s lightning, and the thunder rolls.
The radio goes off and on. The rain
falls to the pavement like applause.

A scrap of paper tumbles down the street.
On rainy evenings Schumann would look out
and scribble on the windows of his cell.
“Such harmony.” Cars splash out in the rain.
The relatives of Berlioz were horrified
to see the horses break from the cortege
and gallop with his casket to the grave.
Liszt wept to hear old Paganini play.
Haydn’s wife used music to line pastry pans.
