这只灰色的猫头鹰看见了我们,逃了
但是没逃远。我们悄悄滴跟随着,
把他从一棵松树赶到另一棵松树上:
我不会让你走,除非你为我祝福。

似乎毫无乐趣,他飞了
迫使自己从树枝上落下
直到他的翅膀钩住了他
他们不得艰难地划,像沉重的双桨一样。

他一定吃了什么东西,
自食其果
重要他穿过沼泽,不见了
似乎进入了新的一天,时间就在我们面前。

我们站在齐胸高的芦苇旁边
我们渐渐下沉是双脚,感觉到
我从半空中
突然跌落回我们的现实里
The gray owl had seen us and had fled
but not far. We followed noiselessly,
driving him from pine to pine:
I will not let thee go except thou bless me.

He flew as though it gave him no pleasure,
forcing himself from the bough,
falling until his wings caught him:
they had to stroke hard, like heavy oars.

He must have just eaten
something that had, itself, just eaten.
Finally he crossed the swamp and vanished
as into a new day, hours before us,

and we stood near the chest-high reeds,
our feet sinking, and felt
we'd been dropped suddenly from midair
back into our lives.
