An Aspen at My Window

窗前有一棵白杨树 在秋风裡瑟瑟作声 不知道他在絮絮些什麽 我常常是听而不闻 他的叶片是小小的心脏 树身上有一隻隻眼睛 也许他看到我在灯下凝思 我却不能领会他的关心 他似乎在说:秋天太短 金色的叶片已快掉尽 或许他在暗中羡慕着我 降雪时有一个屋顶 我倒是十分妒嫉他 叶子掉尽还可以重生 春往秋来,我会老去 有一天见不到我的踪影 他原自雪山皑皑的溪边 我迁自亚热带的雨林 两棵移植的树不期而遇 一个怕长年轮、一个无根 (注: 白杨 (Aspen)栽在海拔不高之处,寿命不长。)


At my window there is an aspen In the autumn wind, now rustling I do not understand what he whispers I often do not pay attention His leaves resemble many tiny hearts And his stems grow eyes He may see me pondering under a lantern But I have never sensed his concern He seems to say: Autumn is too brief Gone are almost all my golden leaves He might envy me, outside in the dark That I have a roof overhead while the snow blows But I am quite jealous of him He regenerates after the leavess are all gone Year by year I will grow older and older Until one day he won’t see me anymore. He came down from a snowy mountain, beside the creek I migrated from a rain forest Two transplanted trees meet here by chance One worries about adding rings; the other, about being rootless Note: Aspens cannot survive long at lower elevation.
