Song of a Wandering Son

by Meng Jiao (751-814)

A garment sewn with love in every stitch
Is to accompany a traveling son
Doubling up in threads prior to his departure
Is a mother's way to ease one more concern
In case his absence shall last a long long time
Uncertain on his date of return

In what way can we ever repay
For the love of a mother
Ask a blade of grass in late spring
How much it owes to sunshine
Does it know better

D.S.2020.0510.a (Revised)


名家摘译:
龚景浩;孙大雨;任治稷、余正;张廷琛、魏博思;许渊冲;徐忠杰;唐一鹤;刘国善、王治江、徐树娟;Robert Kotewell & Norman Smith 等译。


For Her Son Who’ll Be Away for a While
Meng Jiao

Needle and thread in doting mother’s hand
Turn out garments for her son out to roam the land.
She puts in more stitches e’en as he leaves
And frets that his homecoming may be moved back.
Who says the tiny inch-tall blade of grass
Can e’er repay the warm sunshine of spring?

(龚景浩 译)


The Wandering Son’s Song

The thread from my dear mother’s hand
Was sewn in the clothes of her wandering son.
For fear of my belated return,
Before my leave they were closely woven.
Who says mine heart like a blade of grass
Could repay her love’s gentle beams of spring sun?

(孙大雨 译)


Chant of a Roaming Son

The thread in the mother’s hand,
The clothes worn by the wanderlust son.
The nearer the departure,
The closer the stitches sown,
Lest his return be further postponed.
Who said the grass blade of a heart
Could repay the glory of the late spring sun?

(任治稷、余正 译)


A Journeyer’s Song

Through a kind mother’s hands passed the thread
That made the clothes I journeying wear.
Tightly tightly she wove them then,
Dreading year after year of no return.
Can the young grass ever repay
The spring sun’s kindly rays?

(张廷琛、魏博思 译)


Song of the Parting Son

From the threads a mother’s hands weaves,
A gown for parting son is made.
Sown stitch by stitch before he leaves,
For fear his return be delayed.
Such kindness as young grass receives
From the warm sun can’t be repaid.

(许渊冲 译)


A Roamer’s Song

My benevolent mother —
With thread and needle in hand,
Mends the garment I have on,
Ere I leave my native land.

More stitches, ere I take leave,
To hold the seams firm and fast.
As itinerant worker,
To come home I’d be the last.

With what can I repay Ma?
Whatever others may say,
For what she has done for me,
Her, I can never repay.

(徐忠杰 译)


Cotton threads in the fond mother’s hand were stitched
Into clothes on the body of her son who was travelling for afield.
She sewed and sewed with close stitches on his departure
For fear that he might come back late.
How can the heart of a son like a tiny grass requite
The infinite love of his mother,
Which is as warm as the sunshine in spring late!

(唐一鹤 译)


Chant of the Rover

In loving Mother’s hand a thread keeps shuttling,
To mend a travelling suit for thee who’re parting.
O why doth she with stitches small, small sew?
For fear be thou away so song, long on th’ rove!
Say not a pretty grass-blade grateful, can possibly repay
Spring sunshine’s nursing unfailing — throughout its suckling days!

(刘国善、王治江、徐树娟 等译)


Wanderer’s Song
by Meng Jiao

The thread from a fond mother’s hand
Is now in the jacket of her absent son.
As his departure came near, closer and closer was the stitching.
Her mind fearing that his return would be delayed and delayed.
Who says that the heart of an inch-long plant
Can requite the radiance of full Spring?

(Robert Kotewell & Norman Smith 译)

在名家摘译中,我比较喜欢许渊冲和孙大雨先生的译文。 不过,如果这是古诗词中译英比赛,我会投 David 译文的票。
另外,我觉得,如果删去译文第一段的最后一句(“Uncertain on his date of return”),好像也读得通。 译文的最后一句这样变换一下不知是否可以:

Ask a blade of grass in late spring
How much it owes to sunshine
How that could be repaid

世界首个!中国建造完成全球最大新冠疫苗生产车间
2020-05-12 20:27:05 来源: 中国之声


At least for a minute, I was really happy,
As I saw this report with a headline that reads:
"The largest workshop in the world for the production of a vaccine for COVID-19
Has now been built in China and is ready!"
Until I started reading the report itself and found the title tricky.
It's a fact most people already know that China is the world's first on this and that,
And the largest or the best on many fronts; however
The tendency to abuse the superlatives by some writers has reached a new level of absurdity,
To a point where readers feel a need to challenge a report for its honesty,
And the reporter his or her professional integrity!
I believe simple and honest words would have more power,
Especially when speaking as a source from or in the tone of an authority.
To me this announcement sounds no different to the following:
Now staged and ready is the grandest wedding in history,
Except the bride is still a mystery.

《故国五十多年前》

阴雨连绵漫平池,有酒无钱忆往事。
故国五十多年前,游斗地主坏分子。
鸣锣开道戴高帽,姓名挂牌自己叫。
放学追随锣鼓走,长街沿途看热闹。
游完城镇游乡村,鸡飞狗叫蚕娘逃。
成片桑园葚满枝,最紫那颗总最高。
爬上树去怕枝断,猴手猴脚够不到。
满嘴塞得紫嘟嘟,兜里满了装书包。
野到天色渐渐暗,突然想起饭要烧。
泥鞋泥裤往家奔,生气父母已先到。
邻家小孩有受罚,我没被打果倒掉。
语文数学全染黑,饭后还得洗书包!

D.S.2020.0516.a

The persistent drizzle and intermittent rain we are having now in the Pacific Northwest, especially in the Seattle area, remind me of similar weather in the Jiangnan region this time of the year. Prior to the May 16th Circular (五·一六通知)in 1966, which served as a signal for the official start of the Cultural Revolution, people with less than perfect social status (e.g. former landlords, rich farmers, rightists or clerks who had served the previous government), were already being gathered for study, criticism, and denunciation, a series of cleansing activities called 四清. But when summer arrived, all activities accelerated into sheer public humiliation and personal attacks. To an adolescent, these events were bewildering and exciting to say the least, until they went out of control and became so violent that all schools had to close. We had no class for well over a year.

Tap Your Troubles Away May 19, 2020

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLdYN66fcXo





Tap Your Troubles Away (Rita Moreno)

Tap your troubles away
You've bounced a big check
Your mom has the vapors
Tap your troubles away
Your car had a wreck
They're serving you papers
If you're some one that it always rains on
Why not try putting your Mary Janes on?

Your boss just gave you the axe
There's years of back tax
You simply can't pay
If a sky full of crap
Always lands in your lap
Make a curtsey
And tap your troubles away


Tap your troubles away
You're sued for divorce
Your brother gets locked up
Tap your troubles away
You're fat as a horse
And find that you're knocked up
If you need something to turn your mind off
Why not try tapping your poor behind off?

Your boat is going over the falls
The plane you're in stalls
The pilot yells "pray"
When your parachute strap
Starts beginning to snap
Smile a big smile
And tap, tap, tap your troubles away


When the wolf's at the door
There's a bluebird in store
If you glide across the floor
When your ankles get sore
Just tap, tap, tap your troubles away
Your troubles away
Your troubles away

D.S.2020.0521.a

This may offend a lot of people, especially those colleagues from the North. However, generally speaking, in terms of accuracy in pronunciation at the beginner's stage of English learning as a second language, the above has been my observation since college years and throughout my career as an English teacher, interpreter and translator. There are of course exceptions, but if we are to look at the truth in a forum discussion such as this, rather than avoiding sensitive topics due to concerns of political correctness, most colleagues can see that as a fact, I think. While those learners from the North may shine in writing, vocabulary or exams, they need extra effort if they want to excel in spoken English.
