如果我的心是一朵蓮花

-

~ 林徽因 · 馬雁散文集 · 蓮燈 ~

馬雁在她的散文《高貴一種,有詩為證》裡,提到「十多年前,還不知道林女士的八卦及成就前,在期刊上讀到別人引用的《蓮燈》」

覺得非常喜歡,比之卞之琳、徐志摩,別說是毫不遜色,簡直是勝出一籌。前面的韻腳和平仄的處理顯然高於戴望舒之流,且有中西合璧式的技巧,沒有深厚的近體詩功底以及十四行詩技術,大概是很難寫出前四行的。「浮沉它依附著人海的浪濤/明暗自成了它內心的秘奧」,兩行的句式轉換顯得非常靈活,而當時李金髮們還在糾纏於怪異語法……在我個人心目裡,《蓮燈》算得上中國現代文學裡最好的詩作之一。其中最可貴的是沒有苦難,都是很優雅的。

細細品之,覺得馬雁的評語不是過譽,這首詩確實是 underestiamted。

如果我的心是一朵蓮花,
正中擎出一枝點亮的蠟,
熒熒雖則單是那一剪光,
我也要它驕傲的捧出輝煌。
不怕它只是我個人的蓮燈,
照不見前後崎嶇的人生——
浮沉它依附著人海的浪濤
明暗自成了它內心的秘奧。
單是那光一閃花一朵——
像一葉輕舸駛出了江河——
宛轉它飄隨命運的波湧
等候那陣陣風向遠處推送。
算做一次過客在宇宙裡,
認識這玲瓏的生從容的死,
這飄忽的途程也就是個——
也就是個美麗美麗的夢。

You Got Me Singing

-

~ Leonard Cohen · Popular Problems · You Got Me Singing ~

You got me singing
Even tho’ the news is bad
You got me singing
The only song I ever had
You got me singing
Ever since the river died
You got me thinking
Of the places we could hide
You got me singing
Even though the world is gone
You got me thinking
I’d like to carry on
You got me singing
Even tho’ it all looks grim
You got me singing
The Hallelujah hymn
You got me singing
Like a prisoner in a jail
You got me singing
Like my pardon’s in the mail
You got me wishing
Our little love would last
You got me thinking
Like those people of the past
You got me singing
Even though the world is gone
You got me thinking
I’d like to carry on
You got me singing
Even tho’ it all went wrong
You got me singing
The Hallelujah song
