[英國] 湖區的詩人—華茲華斯 William Wordsworth

又是湖區。沒辦法,即使她已如此觀光化,但依舊美得讓人念念不忘。

分享一首生長於湖區的英國浪漫主義著名詩人華茲華斯的作品,也是英國學生必讀的一首詩作。

The Daffodils 或 I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

(來聽Jeremy Irons讀詩)

I wandered lonely as a cloud                      
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,      
When all at once I saw a crowd,               
A host of golden daffodils;                        
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,             

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.         

Continuous as the stars                               
that shine and twinkle on the Milky Way,     
They stretched in never-ending line              

along the margin of a bay:                             
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,                    
tossing their heads in sprightly dance.          

The waves beside them danced; but they      
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:             
A poet could not but be gay,                        
in such a jocund company:                           
I gazed – and gazed – but little thought         

what wealth the show to me had brought:    

For oft, when on my couch I lie 
In vacant or in pensive mood,                    

They flash upon that inward eye                 
Which is the bliss of solitude;                     
And then my heart with pleasure fills,        

And dances with the daffodils.                   

華茲華斯的鴿屋就位於湖區這座美麗的小村莊Grassmere。

村內的老教堂墓園,是詩人的安息地,墓地前刻着他的詩作。

When You Grow Up by Priscilla Anh

另一首詩:

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream–
Lingering in the golden gleam–
Life, what is it but a dream?

~ by Lewis Carroll (這是詩最後兩段,其實作者以愛麗斯的名字Alice Pleasance Liddell串成整首詩)

當然,我們王維的《桃源行》意境也不俗。

王維《桃源行》

  漁舟逐水愛山春,兩岸桃花夾古津。坐看紅樹不知遠,行盡青溪忽值人。山口潛行始隈隩,山開曠望旋平陸。遙看一處攢雲樹。近入千家散花竹。樵客初傳漢姓名,居人未改秦衣服。居人共住武陵源,還從物外起田園。月明松下房攏靜,日出雲中雞犬喧。驚聞俗客爭來集,競引還家間都邑。平明閭巷掃花開,薄暮漁樵乘水入。初因避地去人間,更問神仙遂不還。峽裡誰知有人事,世中遙望空雲山。不疑靈境難聞見,塵心未盡思鄉縣。出洞無論隔山水,辭家終擬長游衍。自謂經過舊不迷,安知峰壑今來變。當時只記入山深,青溪幾度到雲林。春來遍是桃花水,不辨仙源何處尋。

《終南別業》簡斂流暢,深遠意境卻是不減:

中歲頗好道,晚家南山垂。
興來每獨往,勝事空自知。
行到水窮處,坐看雲起時。
偶然值林叟,談笑無還期。
