words, wide night

                   Written by Carol Ann Duffy

Somewhere on the other side of this wide night
and the distance between us, I am thinking of you.
The room is turning slowly away from the moon.

This is pleasurable. Or shall I cross that out and say
it is sad? In one of the tenses I singing
an impossible song of desire that you cannot hear.

La lala la. See? I close my eyes and imagine
the dark hills I would have to cross
to reach you. For I am in love with you and this
is what it is like or what it is like in words.

这是诺亚最后写给艾丽的两首诗。当时诺亚患上了癌症和严重的风湿病,艾丽则患上了可怕的阿尔茨海默氏症。当两人老病相催、走向人生终点的时候,陪伴他们的是一份忠贞不渝、坚不可摧的爱情。

the body slows with mortal ache, yet my promise
remains true at the closing of our days,
a tender touch that ends with a kiss
will awaken love in joyous ways.


Love, in these last and tender hours
is sensitive and very pure
Come morning light with soft-lit powers
to awaken love that's ever sure.

《The Notebook》一书描述了诺亚和艾丽之间长达五十年之久的爱情故事。整个故事的铺陈比较平淡,没有一波三折、感人肺腑的情节,但却体现了“执子之手,与子偕老”的相依相偎的浪漫爱情。

我从里面摘录了几段诺亚写给艾丽的诗和日记贴在下面:

be compose - be at ease with me??
not till the sun excludes you do I exclude you,
not till the waters refuse to glisten for you and the leaves to rustle for you,
do my words refuse to glisten and rustle for you.


I wander all night in my vision,??
bending with open eyes over the shut eyes of sleepers,
wandering and confused, lost to myself,
ill-assorted, contradictory,
pausing, gazing, bending, and stopping.


When I see you, my darling, in the morning before showers or in your studio covered in paint with hair matted and tired eyes, I know that you are the most beautiful woman in the world.


Our souls were one, if you must know
and never shall they be apart;
With splendid dawn, your face aglow
I reach for you and find my heart.

Prosaic Poetry or Poetic Prose?

I don't know about you, but I
cannot help feeling that some of these
are really prose, broken up randomly,
and not quite poetry.

Beautiful the lines may indeed be,
that I do not care to dispute,
but the fact does remain, that
broken prose may not be poetry.

However, should you prefer to differ,
doubtless you bring cheer to  prosaic writers
at this new opportunity to turn into exotic poets
by the simple use of the hard line break.
