Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again

by xu zhi mo

Very quietly I take my leave
As quietly as I came here;
Quietly I wave good-bye
To the rosy clouds in the western sky.

The golden willows by the riverside
Are young brides in the setting sun;
Their reflections on the shimmering waves
Always linger in the depth of my heart.

The floating heart growing in the sludge
Sways leisurely under the water;
In the gentle waves of Cambridge
I would be a water plant!

That pool under the shade of elm trees
Holds not water but the rainbow from the sky;
Shattered to pieces among the duckweeds
Is the sediment of a rainbow-like dream?

To seek a dream? Just to pole a boat upstream
To where the green grass is more verdant;
Or to have the boat fully loaded with starlight
And sing aloud in the splendor of starlight.

But I cannot sing aloud
Quietness is my farewell music;
Even summer insects heap silence for me
Silent is Cambridge tonight!

Very quietly I take my leave
As quietly as I came here;
Gently I flick my sleeves
Not even a wisp of cloud will I bring away

再 别 康 桥

徐 志 摩

轻 轻 的 我 走 了 , 正 如 我 轻 轻 的 来 ;
我 轻 轻 的 招 手 , 作 别 西 天 的 云 彩 。

那 河 畔 的 金 柳 , 是 夕 阳 中 的 新 娘 ;
波 光 里 的 艳 影 , 在 我 的 心 头 荡 漾 。

软 泥 上 的 青 荇 , 油 油 的 在 水 底 招 摇 ;
在 康 河 的 柔 波 里 , 我 甘 心 做 一 条 水 草 !

那 榆 荫 下 的 一 潭 , 不 是 清 泉 ,
是 天 上 虹 揉 碎 在 浮 藻 间 , 沉 淀 着 彩 虹 似 的 梦 。

寻 梦 ? 撑 一 支 长 篙 , 向 青 草 更 青 处 漫 溯 ,
满 载 一 船 星 辉 , 在 星 辉 斑 斓 里 放 歌 。

但 我 不 能 放 歌 , 悄 悄 是 别 离 的 笙 箫 ;
夏 虫 也 为 我 沉 默 , 沉 默 是 今 晚 的 康 桥 。

悄 悄 的 我 走 了 , 正 如 我 悄 悄 的 来 ;
我 挥 一 挥 衣 袖 , 不 带 走 一 片 云 彩 。
