编辑点评:今天小编给大家带来的是口译实践,仲夏时分早就过了众鸟的孵化期,但在洪湖湿地保护区,一只水雉却趴在芡实上,捂实那窝鸟蛋横住了我的去途。整个傍晚我们就这样默不做声,彼此对峙,似友更像死敌。

水雉是水雉科的一种。在台湾多栖息于菱角田间,俗称菱角鸟,在繁殖期金黄褐白羽色和长长尾羽,水上盈盈、姿态翩翩又有“凌波仙子”美称。小水雉。

水雉
哨兵
 
仲夏时分早就过了众鸟的孵化期,但在洪湖
湿地保护区,一只水雉
却趴在芡实上,捂实那窝鸟蛋
横住了我的去途。整个傍晚
我们就这样默不做声,彼此
对峙,似友
更像死敌。时光
就此倒流,湖面上的空寂
和薄雾,仿佛战争过后的惨景
我期待着它能快点飞走,好让我
赶在天黑前,打探清楚
七十年前水牢的位置。但水雉
却堵在独木舟前,神态安详
镇定,丝毫不亚于
那些受刑领死的先哲

 Jacana
Shao Bing
 
In midsummer, far past the roosting season, in the protected
wetlands of Lake Hong, a Jacana
broods over some gorgon fruit, hovering over them like eggs
in the middle of my path. Through the night
the Jacana and I maintain our silence, facing
off, like companions
but more like mortal enemies. Time
reverses its flow, the solitude on the lake surface and
the mist, seem like the tragic aftermath of war
I expect the Jacana to fly away, so that I can
beat sundown, on my quest to find out where those watery jails
used to hail. But the Jacana
blocks the canoe, its manner serene
unperturbed, no less than
those ancient sages on the eve of martyrdom
(Kyle Anderson 译)
