Sonnet 94

 

They that have pow’r to hurt, and will do none,

That do not do the thing they most do show,

Who, moving others are themselves as stone,

Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;

They rightly do inherit heaven’s graces

And husband nature’s riches from expense;

They are the lords and owners of their faces,

Others but stewards of their excellence.

The summer’s flowr is to the summer sweet,

Though to itself it only live and die;

But if that flow’r with base infection meet,

The basest weed outbraves his dignity:

    For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;

Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.

 

有种人,有权力害人,而不去加害,

看来是易如反掌,他们却不做,

使别人动情,而自己是石头一块,

冷若冰霜,不受人家的诱惑;

他们,无愧地承受了天生丽质,

栽培着自然的财富,不浪费点滴;

他们才是自己的美貌的主子,

别人,不过是经手美色的仆役。

夏天的花儿对夏天总芬芳可亲,

尽管它只是独自茂盛又枯萎;

但那花要是染上了卑贱的瘟病,

最贱的野草也要比它更高贵;

        甜东西做了贱事就酸苦难尝;

        发霉的百合远不如野草芳香。

                                     ——屠岸 译

 

Poem Appreciation

Those who have the ability to hurt but choose not to, who do not use that power even though they look most certain of having it;

 

Who, when moving others, are themselves still, unmoved, emotionally cold, and slow to temptation,

 

It is they who rightly inherit heaven's graces and spare nature's riches from ruin;

 

They can control their facial expressions (thoughts and emotions), while others merely serve their emotions.

 

But if that flower should develop an awful infection, the worst weed would outshine the flower in dignity:

 

For it is those things that are sweetest that can become sourest by their deeds; lilies that rot smell far worse than weeds.

 

 

小编寄语

 

只有能控制自己感情的人,即忠于爱的人,才配承受上天赐给他的美貌,否则就是滥用感情,做了挥霍美貌的浪子了。

 

一朵花,尽管无人鉴赏,对夏天和自己总是芳馨的,但是假若它染上了疫病,变了色香,那么它就比最坏的草也不如了。

 

高贵人格的堕落,比原来不是高贵者更可鄙。莎翁在这首诗里推崇那种洁身自好,不用自身美貌蛊惑别人又受别人蛊惑的人。

 

不仅是美貌,我们还会拥有其他很多优点和长处。

 

大家要坚守善良的本心,高贵的品格,不欺骗别人,也不受别人欺骗。
