官道梁:草药年代     文/ 天涯女子  译/ 浓浓的绿意

 

那年,我爱上了草药的家族

这些夏天才来探望人间的小小亲戚

一个个拥有瞬间被人记住的好名声

比如,早晨高高在上的鸡冠草

到了傍晚,我们的灯芯草盘坐烛台

她想照见林中的香木,照见自己

 

雨水充沛的官道梁,会遇见金钱草

这远在深山的富贵,有我这门穷亲戚

待到林中的阳光打下来,像旧日子

它们会被一两只松鼠踩了尾巴

 

在靠近北斗草的阴坡,有牵牛子纠缠

有白苋齿的割爱。蝴蝶也来了

一派公主的华丽。它们被满山的草香

迷醉得说不出话语,甚至忘了故乡

它们集体爱上了这寂寥的民间

它们把美好的一面放得低于生活

 

那年我着布衣,饮甘露,居茅舍

我不是神仙,却深陷接地连天的精气

我富足有草药,落魄听秋雨

我发烧时煮柴胡服下,闲暇时借山风放牧

我一再端详蒲公英,它把花蕊送往远方

 

现在,草药时代已经走远,山岭尽处

悬崖边的酸枣树,久别的灯笼

我不说出果实,我是说这一点红啊

要响应一场雪的白见证它的真

我是打着灯笼的故人,这么多年了

我打不开内心的苍凉。我操着方言

在她斑斓的河山,写不下迷醉的甘苦

Guandao Ridge: Herbal Years    by A Female Wanderer    tr Lush Greenness

 

From that year on I came to love the herbal families, but only

In the summertime did I call on my earthly petty kinsfolk.

Each of their specific characters was easily committed to memory,

For instance cockscomb flowers stood high in the morn’s light.

At eventide rush wicks sat cross-legged upon the oil burners,

Lighting up aroma trees in the woods, and themselves as well.

 

Plentiful rain fell on Guandao Ridge, where I espied gold-coin bushes,

As the poor luckily got a relative of wealth in secluded mountains.

Sunbeams penetrated layers of foliage, suggesting that worn-out

Days be stepped upon by one or two squirrels.

 

Near the shady slope of Big Dipper grass grew morning glories entangled,

While white amaranths attracted butterflies with cherished possessions

As royal as a princess. Too intoxicated by grass breaths

To speak any words, they even forgot their birthplace.

All became collectively attached to the seclusion, and

Used to put a bright side lower than their own daily life.

 

Then I stayed in a thatched cottage, drank dews, wore cotton clothes,

And buried myself deep in the suffusing vital essence though not a elf.

I felt enriched with herbaceous plants; I drearily listened to autumn raindrops;

I prepared honewort soup for my fever; I borrowed gusts to care after my herds;

I gazed at dandelions repeatedly, and sent their pistils far away.

 

Now the herbal age goes afar, and at the end of mountain ridges

Protrude cliffside jujube trees with red dates on--long-parted lanterns.

I do not consider them fruit; I say that dabs of redness

Respond to a snowstorm to witness the unshakable sincerity.

An old friend as I am, carrying a lantern for so many years;

I cannot open my heart due to desolation; I use the local dialect;

Hardly can I record the sweetness and bitterness upon the terrific mountains.
