作品原文

Diaphenia like the daffadowndilly,
White as the sun, fair as the lily,
Heigh ho, how I do love thee!
I do love thee as my lambs
Are belovèd of their dams;
How blest were I if thou would'st prove me.

Diaphenia like the spreading roses,
That in thy sweets all sweets encloses,
Fair sweet, how I do love thee!
I do love thee as each flower
Loves the sun's life-giving power;
For dead2, thy breath to life might move me.

Diaphenia like to all things blessèd
When all thy praises are expressèd,
Dear joy, how I do love thee!
As the birds do love the spring,
Or the bees their careful king:
Then in requite, sweet virgin, love me!

译文

付勇林 译

黛尔菲妮娅象朵水仙花,
如骄阳般纯洁,似百合般光华,
哎呀呀,我多么地爱您啊!
我真诚地爱您,就象小羊
亲昵可爱的妈妈;
我该何等地幸运,倘您把我嘉纳。

黛尔菲妮娅象盛开的玫瑰花,
您的馨香凝聚了所有的芳华,
心爱的人儿,我多么地爱您啊!
我真心地爱您,就像每一朵鲜花
倾慕太阳生机的强大;
假如我离别人世,您唤春的气息也使我
精神焕发。

黛尔菲妮娅如万物般洪福广大,
当您全部的赞语已尽情表达,
亲爱的娇娃,我多么地爱您啊!
就像百鸟喜爱三月阳春,
或如蜜蜂崇拜蜂王豁达:
那末,倾心相许,可爱的人儿,爱我吧!

我的感想

把H. Constable的维基百科[1]放在这里,然后遁走……咳,这首诗真是让人没眼看,果然这位作者以热情洋溢著称。
