Vacillation / W.B. Yeats
振盪 / 葉慈


My fiftieth year had come and gone,

I sat, a solitary man,

In a crowded London shop,

An open book and empty cup

On the marble table-top.

半百之年來了又走,
我,形單影隻,倫敦咖啡館
人潮裡獨坐。
大理石桌上
書頁攤開,空杯閒擺。



While on the shop and street I gazed

My body of a sudden blazed;

And twenty minutes more or less

It seemed, so great my happiness,

That I was blessed and could bless.

凝視館內和窗外大街,
全身倏地燃起熱焰 ;
約莫二十分鐘的時間,
一股莫大喜悅
彷若無盡蒙福,亦能施與恩典。


(Mary May 譯)
