Lady of Shalott

Amber 2017-08-11
作者简介:The Lady of Shallot 是维多利亚诗人Alfred Lord Tennyson的名作。诗歌的背景来源于《亚瑟王和圆桌骑士》的一个传说,Astolat百合般的少女Elaine暗恋上骑士Lancelot,郁郁而终。(Alfred Lord Tennyson还做过一首诗《Lancelot and Elaine》。诗人Alfred Lord Tennyson将传说写成一曲凄美的爱情绝唱。被诅咒的少女The Lady of Shallot为了爱情,荡舟顺水而下。当她心中挚爱的人儿看见她时,少女因诅咒已成为一具美丽的尸身。承受着致命的诅咒,去追寻无望的爱情。当小船在少女最后的歌声中慢慢接近恋人的城市,少女的身体也渐渐冰凉,漆黑的双眸再也无法看见心中的他那英俊的面容。只因惊鸿一瞥,不顾一切向爱人奔去,直至付出生命的代价,这是怎样的绝恋。


PART I
第一部分

On either side the river lie
在那河的两岸
Long fields of barley and of rye,
是一片种着大麦和黑麦的农田
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
麦覆盖着平野,远接长天
And thro' the field the road runs by
还有穿行在田野间的小径
To many-tower'd Camelot;
通向古堡卡默洛特
And up and down the people go,
人们在小径上闲庭漫步
Gazing where the lilies blow
凝望大片百合盛开之地
Round an ...

人们在小径上闲庭漫步
Gazing where the lilies blow
凝望大片百合盛开之地
Round an island there below,
盛开在小岛的四面八方
The island of Shalott.
那便是夏洛特岛

Willows whiten, aspens quiver,
泛白的杨柳 颤抖的白杨
Little breezes dusk and shiver
清风吹皱薄暮
Thro' the wave that runs for ever
在水波里永远轻抚
By the island in the river
经久不息的河流
Flowing down to Camelot.
经过小岛向古堡卡米洛流淌
Four gray walls, and four gray towers,
灰色的四座角楼与四面墙
Overlook a space of flowers,
俯瞰繁花盛开的地方
And the silent isle imbowers
和绿荫下沉寂的小岛
The Lady of Shalott.
少女夏洛特

By the margin, willow-veil'd
杨柳掀开边缘的面纱
Slide the heavy barges trail'd
沉重的驳船向下滑落
By slow horses; and unhail'd
马儿不问归途的慢行
The shallop flitteth silken-sail'd

Skimming down to Camelot:
下行掠过古堡卡米洛
But who hath seen her wave her hand?
可有人见过她轻挥手致意?
Or at the casement seen her stand?
或者看到她站立在窗前?
Or is she known in all the land,
亦或者在任何一片土地上看到过她的曼妙身影
The Lady of Shalott?
少女夏洛特

Only reapers, reaping early
麦长芒刺 收割人起早
In among the bearded barley,
只有田间的他们才听到
Hear a song that echoes cheerly
一支轻快的歌回声袅绕——
From the river winding clearly,
来自那蜿蜒而去的河道
Down to tower'd Camelot:
去往古堡卡米洛
And by the moon the reaper weary,
借着月光 疲乏的收割人
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
在多风的高处堆垛麦捆
Listening, whispers "'Tis the fairy
他们倾听着歌 低语呢喃
Lady of Shalott".
是那仙女夏洛特

PART II
第二部分

There she weaves by night and day
她在那里日夜地织着网
A magic web with colours gay.
织一块五彩斑斓的魔网
She has heard a whisper say,
她听到耳旁一声低语
A curse is on her if she stay
倘若她就此停留 魔咒将会降身于她
To look down to Camelot.
.张望那座古堡
She knows not what the 'curse' may be,
她不知魔咒何时会来
And so she weaveth steadily,
所以她只顾忙忙碌碌
And little other care hath she,
不理身外事
The Lady of Shalott.
少女夏洛特

And moving thro' a mirror clear
有一面明亮的镜子
That hangs before her all the year,
常年挂在她眼前
Shadows of the world appear.
显现人世百态
There she sees the highway near
由此她看见附近的大路
Winding down to Camelot:
逶迤通向卡米洛
There the river eddy whirls,
那里一条河有涡流旋风
And there the surly village-churls,
这里村中有粗暴无礼的农夫
And the red cloaks of market girls,
市场女孩的红色斗篷
Pass onward from Shalott.
种种影像跃过她眼前

Sometimes a troop of damsels glad,
有时有一群兴高采烈的少女
An abbot on an ambling pad,
大寺院男住持
Sometimes a curly shepherd-lad,
有时是一个卷发的牧童,
Or long-hair'd page in crimson clad,
或包在酒红色头纱中的长发
Goes by to tower'd Camelot;
他们都去往卡米洛

And sometimes thro' the mirror blue
有时在透蓝的镜子里
The knights come riding two and two:
可看见联袂并辔的骑士
She hath no loyal knight and true,
但没有一位对她矢志不渝
The Lady of Shalott.
对这少女夏洛特

But in her web she still delights
然而她总喜欢织她的网
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
织上她镜中古怪的景象
For often thro' the silent nights
因为常常在寂静的夜里
A funeral, with plumes and lights,
有送葬队伍,有羽饰、火光
And music, went to Camelot:
乐曲,都去往卡米洛
Or when the moon was overhead,
有时候 月光在当空洒下
Came two young lovers lately wed;

"I am half-sick of shadows," said

PART III
第三部分

A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
她的闺房一箭之遥处
He rode between the barley sheaves,
有位骑手在麦捆间驰过
The sun came dazzling thro' the leaves,
叶间筛下的阳光在闪烁
And flamed upon the brazen greaves
使勇士的金甲亮得像火
Of bold Sir Lancelot.
这是骑士蓝斯洛
A redcross knight for ever kneel'd
他的盾牌上有一个图案
To a lady in his shield,
红十字骑士跪在女士前
That sparkled on the yellow field,
这盾在金黄色田间忽闪
Beside remote Shalott.
远处是小岛夏洛特

The gemmy bridle glitter'd free,
缰绳如镶嵌宝石般熠熠生辉
Like to some branch of stars we see
就像我们看到的星星的某些分支
Hung in the golden Galaxy.
悬挂在金色的银河
The bridle bells rang merrily
缰绳欢快地抽打着
As he rode down to Camelot:
当他骑着马到卡米洛时
And from his blazon'd baldric slung
他开朗的脸上闪着阳光
A mighty silver bugle hung,
威武的银喇叭
And as he rode his armour rung,
当他身着盔甲骑马到来时
Beside remote Shalott.
就在距夏洛特不远地地方

All in the blue unclouded weather
所有湛蓝色的艳阳高照的好天气
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
镶满珠宝的马鞍在闪耀
The helmet and the helmet-feather
头盔和头盔羽毛
Burn'd like one burning flame together,
像燃烧的火焰永不止息
As he rode down to Camelot.
当他骑着马到卡米洛时
As often thro' the purple night,
经常在深紫天色的夜晚
Below the starry clusters bright,
星光灿烂的夜空下
Some bearded meteor, burning bright,
一些髯流星,燃烧明亮
Moves over still Shalott.
在夏洛特周围移动

His broad clear brow in sunlight glow'd;
他开朗的脸上闪着阳光
On burnish'd hooves his war-horse trode;
战马锃亮的蹄踏在地上
From underneath his helmet flow'd
骑马的他一路朝前直闯
His coal-black curls as on he rode,
盔下的漆黑鬈发在飘扬
As he rode down to Camelot.
当他骑着马到卡米洛时
From the bank and from the river
岸上的本人、河里的倒影
He flashed into the crystal mirror,
一起映进那水晶似的明镜
"Tirra lirra," by the river
岸上传来了啦啦的歌声
Sang Sir Lancelot.
唱的人是蓝斯洛

She left the web, she left the loom;
她离开织机、离开织的网
She made three paces thro' the room,
她三步两步走过她闺房
She saw the water-lily bloom,
她看见百合花儿开放
She saw the helmet and the plume,
看见那盔顶的鸟羽飘扬
She look'd down to Camelot.
她望着那卡米洛
Out flew the web and floated wide;
那网飞出窗,直朝远处飘
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
那镜子一裂两半地碎掉
"The curse is come upon me," cried
她喊道,“我呀已在劫难逃”
The Lady of Shalott.
她是少女夏洛特

PART IV
第四部分

In the stormy east-wind straining,
萎黄的树林已日渐凋零
The pale yellow woods were waning,
正在狂烈的东风里挣扎
The broad stream in his banks complaining,
宽阔的河在两岸间呻吟
Heavily the low sky raining
低沉的天空大雨下不停
Over tower'd Camelot;
洒向古堡卡米洛
Down she came and found a boat
她出门来到一株柳树前
Beneath a willow left afloat,
找到遗在那里的一条船
And round about the prow she wrote
就把几个字写在船头边
'The Lady of Shalott.'
岛上的少女夏洛特
And down the river's dim expanse--
那河的水面上幽暗昏沉
Like some bold seёr in a trance,
像个恍惚的勇敢占卜人
Seeing all his own mischance--
预见到自己的全部不幸
With a glassy countenance
她那木然而呆滞的眼睛
Did she look to Camelot.
遥望着那卡米洛
And at the closing of the day
天光将冥的茫茫暮色里
She loosed the chain, and down she lay;
她解开船索,躺在船底
The broad stream bore her far away,
让宽阔的河载着她远去
The Lady of Shalott.
载着这少女夏洛特

Lying, robed in snowy white
躺着的她穿雪白的衣裙
That loosely flew to left and right--
因宽松忽左忽右飘摆不停
The leaves upon her falling light--
伴着夜里的天籁和虫鸣
Thro' the noises of the night
落向她的树叶轻柔慢速
She floated down to Camelot;
她漂向卡米洛
And as the boat-head wound along
在两岸的柳坡、田野之中
The willowy hills and fields among,
小船在曲曲折折地前进
They heard her singing her last song,
人们听到她最后的吟唱
The Lady of Shalott.
听到这少女夏洛特的歌声

Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
他们听见的歌忧郁圣洁
Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
忽高忽低
Till her blood was frozen slowly,
唱到她血液逐渐冷却
And her eyes were darken'd wholly,
唱到她无法视物
Turn'd to tower'd Camelot;
望着城堡卡米洛
For ere she reach'd upon the tide
她随波逐流地一路漂去
The first house by the water-side,
没漂到岸边第一幢屋子
Singing in her song she died,
已在自己的歌声中离去
The Lady of Shalott.
是她 少女夏洛特

Under tower and balcony,
身影显得惨白
By garden-wall and gallery,
让船带着她漂过塔楼、墙
A gleaming shape she floated by,
她无声地漂过圆墙、阳台
Dead-pale between the houses high,
漂过耸立在两岸的高宅
Silent into Camelot.
就此漂进卡米洛
Out upon the wharfs they came,
爵爷和夫人、骑士和市民
Knight and burgher, lord and dame,
都拥到码头上看个究竟
And round the prow they read her name,
在船头上读到她的芳名
'The Lady of Shalott'
“岛上的少女夏洛特”
Who is this? And what is here?
她是谁?这是哪?
And in the lighted palace near
附近灯火通明的宫殿中
Died the sound of royal cheer;
国王举行的欢宴寂无声
And they cross'd themselves for fear,
划十字的骑士个个惊恐
All the knights at Camelot:
个个身在卡米洛
But Lancelot mused a little space;
但蓝斯洛沉吟片刻
He said, "She has a lovely face;
说道,“她长得极美”
God in his mercy lend her grace,
愿仁慈的上帝给她恩惠
The Lady of Shalott".
给少女夏洛特



Shalott 很幸运,她充满信心,毫无怀疑毫无悲伤地奔向自己的命运,自己的爱,自己的心。小时候看美人鱼,第一次觉得什么是疼的撕心裂肺,还记得在自家门前看完故事,我一个10岁的小姑娘竟然忍不住要把书放下久久的去平静自己的不甘心,去怨恨王子和那个毫无存在感的公主,那时候的我不能理解化成泡沫的美人鱼为什么会在晨曦之中淡淡微笑作别。但是现在我却可以在Shalott决绝奔向死亡的歌声中发现爱的奇妙,灵魂的美丽。
有的人在摇篮中就已经死亡,垂垂老矣在世上不过是一段朽腐;有些人在流星划过间消逝,却可以光辉灿烂动人心魄。生命为何,灵魂皈依何处,我们这些生者并不知道,但是死亡绝对不会是最终的归宿,也不应该成为如履薄冰过这个人生的理由,生命如此宝贵,让我与其一个火柴一个火柴的点亮取暖,更愿意让它燃烧成一秒钟的篝火,让一人一影一瞬间永恒停留。
虽然已经错过了韶华芳龄,错过了无忧无虑期待纯洁的勿忘我,虽然作为粒粒红尘中的普通人,已经不太可能有机会得到这样的童话,但是好在我还能审美,还能在格子间烧脑工作之余就着夏洛特的流星,暖一暖手和心。
