The Sound of the Clock by Wen Yiduo ~ 闻一多 《钟声》 with English Translations

作品原文

闻一多 《钟声》

钟声报得这样急──
时间之海底记水标哦!
是记涨呢,还是记落呢!──
是报过去底添长呢?
还是报未来底消缩呢?

英文译文

 

The Sound of the Clock
Wen Yiduo

The clock ticks so urgently—
The tide level marker in the sea of time!
Is it recording a rising or a subsiding tide?
The waxing of the past?
Or the waning of the future?
