打断--罗伯特.S.富特

一位男孩停了车
拯救路上的一只乌龟
我在后面
不远处,减速,
他开始把它嘘嘘地赶进矮树丛--
我一边看着

这个野物让我想起古老的过去,
动作笨拙地爬进某个三叠纪晚期的沼泽,
直到它不过是草丛中的一阵沙沙响,
直到它离去。

我希望我用一瞥告诉他
当我经过时,
我是多么高兴他把我挡在那里,
我同情他们二者,
我当做是一种爱的东西,
我对人,有一种
不安的想法
我们应该怎样
让生命在在它可以的时候
在它可以的地方
继续
A boy had stopped his car
To save a turtle in the road;
I was not far
Behind, and slowed,
And stopped to watch as he began
To shoo it off into the undergrowth—

This wild reminder of an ancient past,
Lumbering to some Late Triassic bog,
Till it was just a rustle in the grass,
Till it was gone.

I hope I told him with a look
As I passed by,
How I was glad he'd stopped me there,
And what I felt for both
Of them, something I took
To be a kind of love,
And of a troubled thought
I had, for man,
Of how we ought
To let life go on where
And when it can.
