颂诗译选

守财者惊梦

于中旻 译

 

夜来起狂风,
窗戶皆震动。
守财奴陡然惊醒,
往复徘徊靜室中。
转头看看背后,
边踱步,边颤惊。
查遍每道闩,每个锁,
探遍每个角落每条缝;
然后打开藏宝箱,
欣赏聚敛得意忘形。

蓦地良心猛省;
他搓着双手又捶胸。
他狂张着双睛,
罪咎的灵魂宣判发声:
大地若是保守那些矿藏,
我心深处也保得平安宁靜;
但如今,品德已经卖空!
天啊,什么代价能补偿罪恶的伤痛?
噢,致命的黃金,引诱欺蒙,
人,软弱的人,
怎能战胜你的权能?
黃金从思想中赶走了荣誉,
只剩得一个虛名;
黃金在世上撒遍恶种,
黃金叫兇手去行凶;
黃金指引懦夫的心,
教他奸诈权术与败行。
邪恶多得谁能算清?
道德卻在地上绝了影蹤!

 

The Awakening of The Miser

The wind was high,
The window shakes;
With sudden start,
The Miser wakes!
Along the silent room he stalks;
Looks back, and trembles as he walks!
Each lock and every bolt he tries,
In every creek and corner pries;
Then opens his chest with treasure stored,
And stands in rapture o'er his hoard:

But now with sudden qualms possest,
He wrings his hands, he beats his breast.
By conscience stung he wildly stares;
Thus his guilty soul declares.
Had the deep earth her stores confin'd,
The heart had known sweet peace of mind,
But virtue's sold!
Good heavens! what price
Can recompense the pangs of vice?
O bane of gold! seducing cheat!
Can man, weak man, thy pow'r defeat?
Gold banished honour from the mind,
And only left the name behind;
Gold sow'd the world with every ill;
Gold taught the murderer's sword to kill:
'Twas gold instructed coward hearts
In treachery's more pernicious arts.
Who can recount the mischiefs o'er?
Virtue resides on earth no more!

司布真意在教导他教牧学院的学生,在讲道时,不可过分表演,有失庄重;但其词意甚佳。
