3. The Roadside Fire    路旁野火

I will make you brooches and toys for your delight

   我將為你做些胸針和小玩意兒討你喜歡

Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night,

   鳥兒清晨高唱而星光夜晚閃亮,

I will make a palace fit for you and me

   我將打造一座你我適居的宮殿

Of green days in forests and blue days at sea.

   用青綠森林的日子與蔚藍海洋的日子。

 

I will make my kitchen, and you shall keep your room,

   我將建造我的廚房,而妳要整理妳的房間,

Where white flows the river and bright blows the broom;

   要用清澈的河水洗淨並用掃帚清潔明亮;

And you shall wash your linen and keep your body white     

   而妳應洗好妳的亞麻衣物並保持身子潔白

In rainfall at morning and dewfall at night.

   在雨落下的清晨和露珠欲滴的夜晚。

 

And this shall be for music when no one else is near,

   而這些都是為了音樂當四周無人靠近之時,

The fine song for singing, the rare song to hear!

   有好歌可歡唱,有罕見的歌可聆聽!

That only I remember, that only you admire,

   那首只有我記得,那首只有你喜歡的,

Of the broad road that stretches and the roadside fire.      

   那首迴盪在寬廣大路上和路旁野火邊的歌。
