我认识一位女子--西奥多.罗特克

我认识一个女子,骨骼清奇,
当小鸟悲鸣,她会对它们回之以叹息;
啊,当她移动,她移动的路线不只一条路径:
一个鲜艳的容器能够容纳各种形状!
只有神或在希腊长大的英国诗人
可能透漏她上乘的美德,
(我会让它们同声歌唱,脸对着脸)。

她的愿望发展得多么好啊!她抚摩我的下巴,
她教给我转弯,反转,站立;
她教给我触摸,那波状的白皮肤;
我从她贡献的手中温顺地一点点儿咬;
她是镰刀;我,可怜的我,是耙子,
因着她漂亮的缘故出现在她身后。
(我们堆起多么巨大的干草堆啊)

爱就像一只公鹅,很喜欢一只母鹅;
她的厚嘴唇噘起来,想抓住游荡的音符;
她演奏得非常快,她演奏得轻松;
我的眼睛,它们眼花缭乱地盯着她流动的双膝;
她的几部分能够保持一个纯粹静止的姿态,
一只臀部随着一个活动的鼻子抖动
(她在圈中,那些圈也移动))

让种子成草,草变成干草;
我是一个动作长期的受害者,不是我自己的;
自由为何?想知道永恒。
我发誓她投下一片阴影白如石头。
但谁会日日计算永恒呢?
那些活到老的人知道她肆无忌惮的样子:
(我通过身体摇摆测量时间)
I knew a woman, lovely in her bones,
When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them;
Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one:
The shapes a bright container can contain!
Of her choice virtues only gods should speak,
Or English poets who grew up on Greek
(I’d have them sing in chorus, cheek to cheek).

How well her wishes went! She stroked my chin,
She taught me Turn, and Counter-turn, and Stand;
She taught me Touch, that undulant white skin;
I nibbled meekly from her proffered hand;
She was the sickle; I, poor I, the rake,
Coming behind her for her pretty sake
(But what prodigious mowing we did make).

Love likes a gander, and adores a goose:
Her full lips pursed, the errant note to seize;
She played it quick, she played it light and loose;
My eyes, they dazzled at her flowing knees;
Her several parts could keep a pure repose,
Or one hip quiver with a mobile nose
(She moved in circles, and those circles moved).

Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay:
I’m martyr to a motion not my own;
What’s freedom for? To know eternity.
I swear she cast a shadow white as stone.
But who would count eternity in days?
These old bones live to learn her wanton ways:
(I measure time by how a body sways).
