大黄蜂--乔治.麦克佩斯

十月带来今年最后一只
把它放到你的窗框上睡眠。
它忍受冬天,沦陷的博弈,
某种事物的终结,死亡正要走近。

溺死在罐子里,硬纸板滑过
把它压在下面,现在它睡着离去了,
它武士的头颅弯向一侧,像一张制造来
对付敌人的弓,赋予致命的丧失。

我看见其身体,简单如一个
松果或花旗松,柏树或云杉。
没意义,简直没有什么用处
除非变得比我们拥有的一切更珍贵,

生命最后的阶段,生活在这样一个地方,
年复一年,伴着我们拥有保有的东西,
大谷仓,树林,要变冷的某个地方
死于其中,当这一刻来临,带着某种恩典
.
进入层叠的荣光,没有痛苦
或怨恨,不失优雅
终于,这只死亡的大黄蜂的最后的机遇
遗留一勺子量的恐惧。哦,那可以了。
October brought the last one of the year
And laid it sleeping on your window-frame.
It stood for winter, and the failing game,
The end of something, and death coming near.

Drowned in a jug, with cardboard slid across
To keep it under, it sleeps always now,
Its warrior’s head bent sideways, like a bow
Made to an enemy, for the mortal loss.

I see its body, simple as a cone
Of pine or douglas fir, cypress or spruce.
It has no meaning, scarcely any use
Except to make more precious all we own,

The last of life, and living in this place,
Year in, year out, with what we have and hold,
Great barns, and trees, and somewhere to grow cold
And die in, when the time comes, with some grace

In folded honour, free from bitterness
Or rancour, and not losing elegance
At the last, as this dead hornet’s final chance
Left it a scoop of terror. That, O yes.
