超越篇

威尼斯“诗人”

2010年07月30日

今天儿子特别兴奋,因为威尼斯太美了,他一直霸占着电脑写个不停,等轮到我时,我已经困得不行了。下面是儿子在威尼斯写的日记。

Place: Venice

Today we visited Venice. It was the best day I had from the start of this trip. Venice was built on a hundred of islands. It was very rich in 12th century to 15th century. The victory has gone now, but the glory is forever. Venice still keeps the shape at its golden age. Our ferry passed a lot of grand places. It was really a beautiful city. I like this place the first time I saw it. We arrived at the city centre. We passed the front of the Bridge of Sighs. The back ground was covered by large piece of ad papers. It destroyed the nice picture of the bridge! I hope that the company who did this ad will be soon bankrupt. That ad on the bridge was really a kind of sin! The picture in the poem of Lord Byron was gone!

I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs;

A palace and a prison on each hand.

And now these sentences will be like this:

I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs;

An ad and an ad on each hand.

Look! You see? The poet wrote a lot of it! And today, the merchants changed everything! They forgot why the travelers came to Venice and forgot how they started in the golden age! Sin, yes, it is really a sin! Why do they do this? It’s just like destroying a historic place! How can they do this? The glory of Venice is dying because of them, who put ads beside the bridge! If they want to clean the palace and the bridge, it’s good. They shouldn’t, or mustn’t put up ads! It will destroy the beauty of the city. And it was the same on San Marco Square. The square was dying, just like the whole city! The square was covered by ugly performance places! When my mum was there 15 years ago, the square was clean and fresh. She could see a lot of places from one side, but now it was gone.

Phew, I talked so much, really. Now we came to ride the taxi in Venice: Gondola.

The Gondola

We sat in the Gondola,

In front of a handsome boatman.

I saw the streets made of water,

And the houses upon.

We passed the streets and houses,

Into the Venice’s living land.

It was just like a swing that was shaking,

And the smell of water came to us.

The bridges over were simple,

But kept the deep side of Venice.

So the glory was still,

On the palaces and woods.

We sat still and hoped not to lose a site of the rivers.

The golden hair of the boatman was waving,

Against the blue mighty sky.

Oh, Venice, it’s a pity that you are dying!

But your glory will be remembered forever,

To the end of the world.

Here is Venice

Here is Venice, the city of water.

You are strong once,

But the golden age is gone.

The glory is kept, on the Bridge of Sighs;

The glory is kept, on the St. Marco’s Cathedral;

The glory is kept, on the small Gondola.

I stood on the board of the ferry,

Looking at this falling city,

Thinking for the answer.

I am thinking, and looking at Venice.

Why Venice is so beautiful?

Why Venice is fantastic?

Oh Venice, goodbye, I may come!

Oh Venice, ciao, I will come back!

中译文

地点:威尼斯

今天,我们参观了威尼斯。这是我旅行以来最棒的一天。威尼斯坐落在一百多个岛屿上。从12世纪到15世纪,这里曾经非常富饶。如今,胜利已经远去,但荣耀长存。威尼斯仍保留 着黄金时代的模样。我们的渡轮经过了很多宏伟的地方。这真是一个美丽的城市。我第一次看到这个地方时就喜欢上了它。我们抵达市中心。经过叹息桥时,我看见桥的背面覆盖着大块的广告纸。它毁掉了叹息桥唯美的画面!我希望张贴这个广告的公司很快破产。桥上的广告真的是一种罪过!拜伦诗中的画面不复存在了!

我站在威尼斯的叹息桥上,

一边是宫殿,一边是牢房。
