《Why Did I Laugh Tonight? No Voice Could Tell》 By John Keats__ 江紹倫中譯

《Why Did I Laugh Tonight?  No Voice Could Tell》   By John Keats

Why did I laugh tonight? No voice will tell
No God, no demon of severe response
Deigns to reply from heaven or from hell
Then to my human heart I turn at once:
Heart, thou and I are here, sad and alone,
Say, why did I laugh? O mortal pain!O darkness! darkness! Forever must I moan
To question heaven and hell and heart in vain?
Why did I laugh? I know this being’s lease
My fancy to it’s utmost blisses spreads
Yet would I on this very midnight cease
And all the world’s gaudy ensigns see in shreds
Verse, fame and beauty are intense indeed
But death intenser, death is life’s high meed.

無聲回應我為何今夜發笑(濟慈)

無聲回應我為何今夜發笑
沒有上帝或魔王對應
天堂和地獄都不作回響
我隨即反問內心
心啊你我同在塵世孤獨憂愁
難道是致命的痛苦教我發笑
無盡的黑暗啊我為何怨喊
問天堂地獄我心都無結果
我明知生之有涯為何仍要發笑
我讓幻想伸向極樂境界
但我可能於今夜身亡
眼見這塵世的彩旗紛紛碎裂
詩歌名譽和美人皆濃烈芬芳
但死亡更為緊迫死是生的最高獎賞
