介绍:
Four Skinny Trees They are the only ones who understand me. I am the only one who understands them. Four skinny trees with skinny necks and pointy elbows like mine. Four who do not belong here but are here. Four raggedy excuses planted by the city. From our room we can hear them, but Nenny just sleeps and doesn’t appreciate these things. Their strength is secret. They send ferocious roots beneath the ground. They grow up and they grow down and grab the earth between their hairy toes and bite the sky with violent teeth and never quit their anger. This is how they keep. Let one forget his reason for being, they’d all droop like tulips in a glass, each with their arms around the other. Keep, keep, keep, trees say when I sleep. They teach. When I am too sad and too skinny to keep keeping, when I am a tiny thing against so many bricks, then it is I look at trees. When there is nothing left to look at on this street. Four who grew despite concrete. Four who reach and do not forget to reach. Four whose only reason is to be and be. 四棵细瘦的树 它们是唯一懂得我的。我是唯一懂得它们的。四棵细瘦的树长着细细的脖颈和尖尖的肘骨,像我的一样。不属于这里但到了这里的四个。市政栽下充数的四棵残次品。从我的房间里我们可以听到它们的声音,可蕾妮只是睡觉,不能领略这些。 它们的力量是个秘密。它们在地下展开凶猛的根系。它们向上生长也向下生长,用它们须发样的脚趾攥紧泥土,用它们猛烈的牙齿噬咬天空,怒气从不懈怠。这就是它们坚持的方式。 假如有一棵忘记了它存在的理由,它们就全都会像玻璃瓶里的郁金香一样耷拉下来,手挽着手。坚持,坚持,坚持。树儿在我睡着的时候说。它们教会人。 当我太悲伤太瘦弱无法坚持再坚持的时候,当我如此渺小却要对抗这么多砖块的时候,我就会看着树。当街上没有别的东西可看的时候。不畏水泥仍在生长的四棵。伸展伸展从不忘记伸展的四棵。唯一的理由是存在存在的四棵。(潘帕译) 诵者按:本文出自美国(墨西哥裔)作家桑德拉·希斯内罗丝(Cisneros,S.)的中篇——《the House on mango street》。 个人觉得这也是一本闲时值得一读再读的书,本篇短文更是如此。 其他不表,只消去体味那诗样的语言,还有那街边的瘦树、那巨砖冷楼旁的小女孩。。。那无声的呼喊;生长,生长。。。
