晚夏的暮光中回家--珍.凯尼恩

我们转入俯冲,
砂砾从轮胎下飞出
像火焰里迸出的火花。做了
这么多---打开包裹,邮件
和文件...草坪需要割草...
我们不自然地从车里爬出来。
关闭的引擎冷却时发出滴答声。

然后我们注意到这棵梨树,
枝桠上沉甸甸地缀满了果子
它们几乎触到地面。
我们走出来到草地上;我们的脚步
在草地上踩出黑色的孔洞;
我们每个人摘了一个梨子,
吃了,充满感激。
We turned into the drive,
and gravel flew up from the tires
like sparks from a fire. So much
to be done—the unpacking, the mail
and papers…the grass needed mowing….
We climbed stiffly out of the car.
The shut-off engine ticked as it cooled.

And then we noticed the pear tree,
the limbs so heavy with fruit
they nearly touched the ground.
We went out to the meadow; our steps
made black holes in the grass;
and we each took a pear,
and ate, and were grateful.

“Coming Home at Twilight in Late Summer” by Jane Kenyon from Collected Poems

前面的机械与后面的柔情,画风硬朗,领受圣餐
