《茫,Lost》

在书房翻旧书,看到《守夜人》,余光中1958-2004的诗集。

2008年,难得余光中在80高龄的年纪,仍然有兴致飞越半个地球,来到新山南方学院,参与《诗与音乐》座谈会。听完了精彩的讲座会,临走前选这本诗集带回家。

从来没有读完这本书。诗歌不是我的菜。然而余光中是诗人,他的诗歌影响了华文世界许多响当当的人物。所以买他的诗集,似乎情有可原。而且我曾经很喜欢过抒情诗歌,小时候,买过几本徐慕容,有事没事翻一翻,选几句来悼念自己的强说愁。

青春早焚毁,再读诗歌,味道已变。


《茫》  余光中

万籁沉沉,这是身后,还是生前?
我握的是无限,是你的手?
何以竟夕云影茫茫,清辉欲敛?
这是仲夏,星在天河搁浅

你没有姓名,今夕,我没有姓名
时间在远方虚幻地流着
你在我掌中,你在我瞳中
任萤飞,任蛙鸣,任夜间西倾

有时光年短不盈寸,神话俯身
伸手可以摘一箩传奇
有时神很仁慈,例如今夕
星牵一张发网,覆在你额上

天河如路,路如天河
上游茫茫,下游茫茫,渡口以下,渡口以上
从何处我们来,向何处我们去

向你的美目问略,那里也是
也是茫茫。 我遂轻谓:
此地已是永恒,一切的终点
此地没有,也不需要方向

从天琴到天罡。一切奇幻的光
都眨眼示意,噫,何其诡秘
一时子夜斜向我们,斜一道云梯
我们携手同登,弃时间如遗

Lost

The night is now all quietness. Is this
Before our birth or after our death?
Am I holding endlessness or just your hands?
And why are the clouds so nebulous?

You have no name, tonight, I have no name.
In the distance flows the illusion that is time.
Please remain lovely in my eyes and hands.
Never mind the glow-worms and night's westward descent.

Sometimes light years are shorter than an inch,
And all the myths up there within easy reach;
Sometimes the divine can be so benign, as tonight,
And turn the stars into a hair-net on your hair.

How can we tell the Heavenly Stream from our path
While it's misty upstream and downstream?
And how can I remember where we've been going,
And whence exactly did we come?

And so to your eyes I turn my eyes. And what 
Do I find there but the same mistiness? So I say,
Eternity here is where all paths end,
Where all directions come to a stand.

Suddenly, all the strange lights around the pole
Start winking their knowing eyes at us,
And up the ladder of midnight leaning for us
We climb together, never a backward glance

At where time was and is and ever shall be.

英文篇也是余光中自己翻译的。
