My Days Among the Dead are Passed

Robert Southey(1774-1843)


My days among the Dead are passed;

Around me I behold,

Where'er these casual eyes are cast,

The mighty minds of old:

My never-failing friends are they,

With whom I converse day by day.


With them I take delight in weal,

And seek relief in woe;

And while I understand and feel

How much to them I owe,

My cheeks have often been bedewed

With tears of thoughtful gratitude.


My thoughts are with the Dead;

With them I live in long-past years,

Their virtues love,their faults condemn

Partake their hopes and fear;

And from their lessons seek and find

Instruction with an humble mind.


My hopes are with the Dead,anon

My place with them will be,

And I with them shall travel on

Through all futurity;

Yet leaving here a name,I trust

That will not perish in the dust.

我的岁月尽同死者盘桓;
当我举目向四周观看,
无论把目光投向哪里,
都会遇到已逝的先贤;
他们是我忠实的朋友,
我天天同他们倾心交谈。

我曾与他们同享喜悦,
他曾与他们共遣忧愁;
每当我想起在我生活中
他们给了我多少感受,
我常常为了感激涕零,
泪水在沉思中夺眶而流。

我的思想和死者在一起,
一起生活在遥远的年代里,
我爱他们的品德也贵其错误;
和他们同怀希望和忧虑;
我在他们的遗训中孜孜以求,
把得来的启示在心中铬记。

我的希望也在这些死者身上;
不久我也将去到他们的地方,
我们将一起结伴而行,
向着无穷的未来奔波远航;
我想我也会在此留下一个名字,
这名字永远不会随尘土消亡。
