23.临终者告兀鹫                                      

  稍等,稍等一会,我急迫的朋友,

  很快,我就交出这无用的皮囊。

  徒劳无益的疼痛,

  在消磨你的耐心;

  我不会让你再等长久,

  诚实而饥饿的伙计。

  但这锁链,虽系气息制成,

  却不易粉碎,

  死的愿望——

  强似一切的愿望,

  正被生的愿望——

  弱似一切的愿望羁绊。

  原谅我,伙计,我滞留得太久。

  记忆在控驭着我的灵魂:

  那是列队而过的遥远时光,

  是梦中的青春幻想,

  是一张脸庞告诉我的眼睑不要闭阖,

  是徘徊在耳际的一个声音,

  是抚摩我手臂的又一手臂。

  原谅我,你等得太久。

  现在好了,一切都已凋萎——

  脸庞、声音、手臂,还有

  领它们前来的轻雾。

  结扣已打开,

  绳索已断裂,

  那非食物、非饮料的已撤去。

  靠近些,饥饿的朋友,

  餐桌已备好,

  食物虽不丰厚、简陋,

  却是和着爱奉献。

  来吧,先啄这里,左边,

  将这小鸟街出笼子,

  鸟翼已不会扑腾,

  我要它随你高飞到云霄。

  现在就来,朋友,

  今夜我作东道,

  欢迎你,我的宾客!

 

The Dying Man and the Vulture

Wait, wait yet awhile, my eager friend.
I shall yield but too soon this wasted thing,
Whose agony overwrought and useless
Exhausts your patience.
I would not have your honest hunger
Wait upon these moments:
But this chain, though made of breath,
Is hard to break.
And the will to die,
Stronger than all things strong,
Is stayed by a will to live
Feebler than all things feeble.
Forgive me, comrade; I tarry too long.
It is memory that holds my spirit;
A procession of distant days,
A vision of youth spent in a dream,
A face that bids my eyelids not to sleep,
A voice that lingers in my ears,
A hand that touches my hand.
Forgive me that you have waited too long.
It is over now, and all is faded:
The face, the voice, the hand and the mist that brought them hither.
The knot is untied.
The cord is cleaved.
And that which is neither food nor drink is withdrawn.
Approach, my hungry comrade;
The board is made ready.
And the fare, frugal and spare,
Is given with love.
Come, and dig your beak here, into the left side,
And tear out of its cage this smaller bird,
Whose wings can beat no more:
I would have it soar with you into the sky.
Come now, my friend, I am your host tonight,
And you my welcome guest.
