炉火

 

 

听着:生活像一个火炉,

有些人围着它坐,享受温暖,渐渐感到疲乏,

渐渐把含糊的话留在唇边睡去。

 

另一些人在户外,在寒冷中,

他们甚至不用走近炉火,哪怕只远远地

看见火光,已感到一股温暖流遍全身。

HEARTH FIRE

 

 

Listen. Life is a hearth.

Some sit around enjoying the glow, growing tired,

vague words on their lips, dozing off.

 

Some stand in the cold, outside,

far from the flame, seeing

the firelight, the shock of its warmth

streaming through their flesh.
