◎借电---呐石(译)

两辆汽车泊在一起
你打开我的汽车引擎盖
内部结构你很熟悉,
就这样我们捆绑在了一起
纯粹是因为一腔热情,
我的汽车好似童话中的公主
一下就开始苏醒,
我想到何不一起驶完余下的路程。

Jump Cabling----By Linda Pastan

When our cars touched
When you lifted the hood of mine
To see the intimate workings underneath,
When we were bound together
By a pulse of pure energy,
When my car like the princess
In the tale woke with a start,
I thought why not ride the rest of the way together.


◎回家过感恩节---呐石(译)

参加聚会的人们
影子降临在我们周围,
这个家族
已接近黄昏时分。

天色尚早
回家的路还没有暗淡,
可是窗棂上
日光在渐渐衰弱。

我们即将成为
一张张剪影:
儿辈和父辈的轮廓
注定同样地模糊。

很快女眷们
就会解下围裙
一如树木为了越冬
让树叶飘零。

快点吃吧------
赶紧把肚皮填满。
在我们身后
那本相册正慢慢合拢。

Home For Thanksgiving---By Linda Pastan

The gathering family
throws shadows around us,
it is the late afternoon
Of the family.

There is still enough light
to see all the way back,
but at the windows
that light is wasting away.

Soon we will be nothing
but silhouettes: the sons'
as harsh
as the fathers'.

Soon the daughters
will take off their aprons
as trees take off their leaves
for winter.

Let us eat quickly--
let us fill ourselves up.
the covers of the album are closing
behind us.


◎新诗人---呐石(译)

寻找一位新诗人
如同在野外的树林
寻觅一株陌生的野花。

花卉典籍里你遇不到它的名字,
而且没有人会相信
它奇异的色彩,也没人会相信

它的枝叶斜着生长
布满了整个页面。事实上
页面上还残留有

红酒的味道,以及雾天里
海水的霉味-----
真相和谎言的气味。

你自己写下的那些文字
如此地熟悉,
又不可思议地陌生,但愿

你的梦境曾有一支铅笔
或钢笔,甚至一支画笔,
但愿还曾有一朵花。

A New Poet---By Linda Pastan

Finding a new poet
is like finding a new wildflower
out in the woods. You don't see

its name in the flower books, and
nobody you tell believes
in its odd color or the way

its leaves grow in splayed rows
down the whole length of the page. In fact
the very page smells of spilled

red wine and the mustiness of the sea
on a foggy day - the odor of truth
and of lying.

And the words are so familiar,
so strangely new, words
you almost wrote yourself, if only

in your dreams there had been a pencil
or a pen or even a paintbrush,
if only there had been a flower.
