Creative Translation:

A sonnet by Elizabeth Barrett Browning


Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand

Henceforward in thy shadow. Nevermore

Alone upon the threshold of my door

Of individual life, I shall command

The uses of my soul, nor lift my hand

Serenely in the sunshine as before,

Without the sense of that which I forbore --

Thy touch upon the palm. The widest land

With pulses that beat double. What I do

And what I dream include thee, as the wine

Must taste of its own grapes. And when I sue

God for myself, He hears the name of thine,

And sees within my eyes the tears of two.


去去去

到如今

顾影独踟蹰

落魄失魂无寻处

更那堪

四野寂阒,霞光满袖

随风万里飘去

往往往

大地任苍茫

两心相知莫彷徨

与君狂与君入梦乡

葡萄美酒不相忘

举杯问上苍

一人问,两人眼泪汪汪
