小象

Слонёнок

此刻我对你的爱犹如一头小象,
它生于柏林或是巴黎
它跺着如棉花般柔软的脚掌
在兽王的屋子里徜徉。

对这头小象,你可不能喂它法国小白面包,
也不能喂它白菜或是甘蓝――
它能吃橘子,可也只吃一小瓣儿,
一块白糖或是一点点糖果。

呵,亲爱的,切莫哭泣,不要说
它已成为窄笼里平头百姓的笑柄,
抽烟的人往它鼻子里喷烟圈
马车夫的恶作剧嬴得轻薄女的哈哈笑声。

亲爱的,你别以为,总有一天,
它会发怒,会挣脱锁链
会跑到街上,象一辆汽车,
把狂呼乱叫的人们碾成齑粉。

不,你最好把它想象成这样
浑身珠光宝气,浴着晨光的孔雀的翎羽
犹如从前那位伟人
把汉尼拔丢在颤抖的罗马脚下。

The Sick Man

Only one thing torments my delirium: / how certain sharp lines go on for ever, / and a bell rings and rings and rings / like a clock marking off eternity. / / Just so, after death, / eyes stare into darkness / (the agonized hope of resurrection) / trying to see familiar visions. / ...

Offensive

This country could have been paradise: / it’s a den of fire. / We've been advancing for four days, / we’ve not eaten for four days. / / In this strange, bright hour / we don’t need earth’s bread: / the Lord’s Word / is better nourishment. / / The b...

The Cathedral at Padua

Marvellous, and sad - yes, that’s what this temple / is - a joy, a temptation, a threat. / Eyes exhausted with desire / bum in the slits of confessional windows. / / The organ melody rises, falls, / then swells fuller and more terrible, / like blood in dark church-granite veins ...

The Sun of the Spirit

How could we walk in peace, before, / expecting no joy, no disaster, / not dreaming of battles, of flaming retreats, / or the roaring trumpet of victory ? / / How could we - but it’s not too late, / the sun of the spirit bends down to us - / soothing, threatening, it pours / a...
