最美好的时刻(含英文原文)

分类: 这个世界

无意间看到一篇题为《最美好的时刻》的文章,突然觉得熟悉而美好,觉得应该收藏起来。这篇文章,也许我在中小学时期曾作为阅读理解读过,感觉有些熟悉,但已记不清楚;现在已是冀教版小学语文第九册第九课的课文。

今天看到这篇文章,突然想找到其原文,没想到还真找到了,所以在此将这篇文章的中文版和英文原版献给大家。从这两篇文章的对照中可以看出,其实汉语翻译还是做了相当大的处理的,删除了许多非景色的描写,突出描写了这一刻的所见所闻及心理活动,将美感更加凸显了出来。当然,阅读原文也会有更加自然的感觉。因为中文版做了较多的艺术处理,所以写出来的感觉已经不太像是八岁孩子的所见所想了。而原文则写得更加贴近一个八岁孩子的心理,显得更加真实自然。

据说这篇文章的作者是美国的格拉迪·贝尔,但这似乎并不是一位著名的美国作家。这篇文章很可能是一篇美国小孩的作文,或者是一个写作爱好者写的随笔。搜索了很久还是没能找到格拉迪·贝尔这个名字的英文,也没能找到关于这个作者的任何信息。

下面的中文版摘自国内某网站(大家随便搜索一下就可以发现这篇文章已经在网络上出现过很多次了),而英文原版则来自于一个叫做Pandora Jewelry Blog的国外博客(http://www.pandorajewelry-blog.com/2011/11/07/the-nicest-moment/)。

 

最美好的时刻

每个人,在他的一生中都有一段最美好的时刻。

记得我的这一时刻出现在八岁那一年。那是一个春天的夜晚,我突然醒了,睁开眼睛,看见屋子里洒满了月光。四周静悄悄的,一点声音也没有。

温暖的空气里充满了梨花和忍冬树丛发出的清香。

我下了床,踮着脚轻轻地走出屋子,随手关上了门。母亲正坐在门廊的石阶上,她抬起头,看见了我,笑了笑,一只手拉我挨着她坐下,另一只手就势把我揽在怀里。整个乡村万籁俱寂,临近的屋子都熄了灯,月光是那么明亮。远处,大约一英里外的那片树林,黑压压地呈现在眼前。那只看门狗在草坪上向我们跑来,舒服地躺在我们脚下,伸展了一下身子把头枕在母亲外衣的下襟。我们就这样待了很久,谁都不作声。

然而,在那片黑压压的树林里却并不那么宁静——野兔子和小松鼠、负鼠和金花鼠,它们都在那儿奔跳、欢笑;还有那田野里,那花园的阴影处,花草树木都在悄悄地生长。

那些红的桃花,白的梨花,很快就会飘散零落,留下的将是初结的果实;那些野李子树也会长出滚圆的、像一盏盏灯笼似的野李子,野李子又酸又甜,都是因为太阳烤炙的,风雨吹打的;还有那青青的瓜藤,绽开着南瓜似的花朵,花朵里满是蜜糖,等待着早晨蜜蜂的来临,但是过不了多久,你看见的将是一条条甜瓜,而不再是这些花朵了。啊,在这无边无际的宁静中,生命——这种神秘的东西,它既摸不着,也听不见。只有大自然那无所不能、温柔可爱的手在抚弄着,它正在活动着,它在生长,它在壮大。

一个八岁的孩子当然不会想得那么多,也许他还不知道自己正沉浸在这无边无际的宁静中。不过,当他看见一颗星星挂在雪松的树梢上时,他也被迷住了;当他听见一只模仿鸟在月光下婉转啼鸣时,他心里有一种说不出的高兴;当他的手触到母亲的手臂时,他感到自己是那么安全、那么舒坦。

生命在活动,地球在旋转,江河在奔流。这一切对他来说也许是莫名其妙的事情,也许已经使他模糊地意识到:这就是生命,这就是最美好的时刻。

 

The nicest moment

For a person, there must be a phase of nicest time in his life, it can be the first time heard the story of pandora. For me, my nicest came in the year i was eight. That was a spring night. Somehow, i woke up in a sudden, saw the light golden moonlight spreaded the ground before my bed, everything was sleeping in the silence, no a little noisy. The scent of pear flower and honeysuckle full of every corner of room moving with warm air.

I got up, lifted my foot went out of the house lightly and closed the door by the way, my mother was sitting on the step of the front door, she looked up at me and smiled. She worked in an pandora jewelry store, so rarely had idle time at day. I sat near her, and she hold me with one arm. The whole village emerged in silence, the light near had been turned down, only left the tender moonlight, which is so bright like the ray sent from pandora crystal, like a river flew in quiet. In distance, about one mile away, the woods formed a dark castle. The dog run to us across the grass land, and lied down in a comfortable gesture, spread all fours with satisfied groan, and put its head on my mother’s foot. We stay in still, enjoy the show of moonlight.

However, the world in that woods was not so quiet, the noisy made by hares, small squirrels and Eutamias asiaticus break the still situation now and then, they jumped and laughed. In the shadow of the garden, all the flowers and plants were growing softly. All of elements of this luxuries world formed by kinds of jewelry like pandora charms were far away, i could heard the beat of my heart.

The red peach blossom, the white pear flowers, all of them would wither and fall, but the fruits would be left, the cyan creeper had bloom bright yellow flowers, which were filled with sweet honey, waiting for the coming of bees in the morning. It would not be long time for you to see many sweet melons. In this endless silence, life–this mysterious miracle, could not be touched or be listened. Nature is almighty.

A eight years old child would not think so much or so deep, he was playing with his mother’s pandora bracelets, and maybe do not know that he was enjoying this charming night. He was fascinated by one little star on the treetop of a white pine, his little heart full of joy when she heard the amazing song of one lovely bird who was singing in the treetop shroud by the light. A sense of safety surround him when he touched her mother’s pandora gold ring, and hold her hand.

The earth is spinning, life full of energy, the river is flowing, maybe everything is inexplicable, but he had been aware of the fact that this was life, this was the nicest moment.
