給阿孫的信 (11) 10/06/2019 思念的歌
心情隨筆家庭親子 2019/10/07 07:33:11

親愛的乃森:
你好嗎?你媽咪打電話給阿公説,爹地月底要去西雅圖出差,她也正好輪到值班,再加上你們兩位小朋友每天的接送,她一個人可能忙不過來,所以請阿公去你們家幫忙十天左右。算一算我已經有三個月沒有看到你和妹妹了,所以馬上就欣然同意。一想到能再見到你們兩個,阿公就很興奮,你知道是為什麼嗎?
因為你們兩個現在一天天地很快的長大,稍微隔了一段時間不見,就會感覺到很大的不同:有長高了嗎?有禮貌一點了嗎?中文進步了嗎?每一次的再相會所帶來的驚喜,阿公最期待的有一首唐朝李益寫的詩不就在形容這種心情嗎?兩個表兄弟從小分手了十年,長大之後再重逢:
十年離亂後,長大一相逢。
問姓驚初見,稱名憶舊容。
別來滄海事,語罷暮天鐘。
明日巴陵道,秋山又幾重。
翻成白話文就是:

經過了十年的戰亂分離,長大後竟然會意外重逢。
初見不相識還驚問姓名,講清楚才想起昔日面容。
聊不完別離後世事變化,暢談到黃昏裏寺院鳴鐘。
明日你要登上巴陵古道,秋色満山不知愁添幾重。

十年不見,現在雙方的長相和記憶中小時候的容顏當然會有很大的差別。但是阿公可不想等到那麼久,不然乃森會長大,阿公會老去,到時連乃森也不認得我了!哈哈哈。
你不但外表在成長,內心也越來越懂事了。最近幾次爹地出差時,你總會表現出依依不捨的樣子,令人印象深刻。這教阿公想起小學時國文課本上的一首兒歌:
(孩子)
天這麼黑,風這麼大,
爸爸捕魚去,為什麼還不回家?
聽狂風怒號,真叫我心裡害怕!
爸呀!爸呀!我們多麼牽掛。
只要你早早回家,便是空船也罷!

(爸爸)
我的好寶寶,爸爸回來了。
滿船魚和蝦,你看有多少!
賣魚買米布,大家可溫飽。
爸爸不怕累,只要大家好。

這首兒歌是漁民家庭生活的寫照。不只是漁民,每一個家的爸爸 (還有媽媽) 為了養家活口,必須出去賺錢。即使外面刮風下雨,也要辛苦奮鬥。賺了錢,才能買食物供你們吃喝,買衣服供你們保暖,買車子載你們上學,付學費供你們學習,這些林林總總的花費,都是他 (們) 勞心勞力所換來的代價。他 (們) 不求回報,只要你們健康成長,學有長進,就是最大的安慰。
從小你受到爸爸媽媽無微不至的呵護,幾乎寸步不離。但是現在你漸漸地已能照顧好自己,所以爸爸比較放心地去外地出差,幾天就會回家了。雖然你感到捨不得,但是只有幾天的分開,在他離家的時候,你是大哥哥,要勇敢起來,幫助媽咪做家事,照顧妹妹的起居,這樣爹地出門在外就不會擔心。而且阿公也會來幫忙,一切都會順利圓滿的。

在爹地不在家的時候,因為少了他陪你們玩,所以一定會安靜很多。當周遭都靜下來的當兒,正是你專心思考的好時機。多動腦筋想一想,就不會感到無聊了。但是要從那裏開始呢?阿公幫你起個頭:想想看如何把你的房間整理得有條不紊,要找東西的時候都找得到;想想看怎麼把你的籃球運球技巧練習得更熟練,左右換手,進退自如;想想看怎樣用心養成聽講讀寫中文的習慣興趣,越學越有信心;想想看觀察學習爹地媽咪勇於任事的精神,遇事不亂,永不放棄等等,都是思考方向的好例子。慢慢來,你有很多安靜的時間可以去好好的想,決定你要怎樣去做。記得喔,好的開始,就是成功的一半。

台灣近年有一位鄉土詩人名叫向陽,阿公很喜歡他的一首描寫安靜和思念的抒情詩,在此與你分享:

世界恬靜落 (下) 來的時

就是思念出聲的時

窗仔外的風陣陣地嚎 (吼)

天頂的星閃閃啊熾 (爍)


世界恬靜落 (下) 來的時

我置 (在) 醒過來的暗暝 (夜晚) 想起著你

我置 (在) 睏未去 (睡不著) 的暗暝 (夜晚) 想著你

想起咱牽手行過的小路

  火金姑 (螢火蟲) 提燈照過的田墘 (邊)

  竹林、茫霧和山埔 (沙洲)

猶有輕聲細說 (語) 的溪水

世界恬靜落 (下) 來的時

註:()內是阿公幫你把台語翻成國語的字

這是詩人在安靜的夜晚,想念以前和高中同學一起夜遊的一段美好時光。當全世界都安靜下來的時候,沒有了外界的干擾,你就會聽到自己心裏的聲音,吿訴你最想念的人是誰?最難忘的事物是什麽?你會想要和你心底浮現的那張臉分享。

秋天來了,天高氣爽,是散步的好時節。上個月你們全家去西雅圖爬山,在松林裏漫步,看起來好輕鬆好愜意!爹地出差的時候,如果真的很想念他,不妨找媽咪、妹妹一起去散步,邊走邊談,聊聊學校、聊聊爹地,像那首你念過的唐詩 (韋應物所作) 一樣 (阿公改了它一個字):

懷爹屬秋夜,散步詠涼天空山松子落,幽人應未眠。

西雅圖和你家附近公園一樣,也有好多高大的松林。秋夜裏,漫步在空曠的山野中,松子紛紛灑落下來,應該美得無聲無息。此時此刻,在西雅圖的爹地如果還沒睡覺,一定也在欣賞秋景,靜靜地想念他的乃森和妹妹吧。

晚安,祝一夜好眠⋯⋯不要掛心,夢一醒,爹地就回來了。


想你的阿公

[English Version]
Dear Nathan:
How are you? Your mommy called grandpa and said that your daddy is going to Seattle for business trip at the end of October. In the meantime she will also be on call, plus the daily transportation of you two children, it may be too much for her to manage. So she asked me to come to your home to help for about ten days. I figured that I have not seen you and your sister for three months anyway, therefore, I immediately concurred. When grandpa just think of seeing both of you, I am very excited already. Do you know why?
Because the two of you are growing up day by day, if we just miss each other for a while, grandpa can feel a great difference, such as growing taller? better manners? improved Mandarin? Grandpa is looking forward to receiving the surprises of each visit. Is there not a poem written by Li Yi of the Tang Dynasty that describes this mood? There were two cousins who ​​broke up for ten years since childhood and reunited after growing up:
After ten years of chaos, we grew up and met.
Asked the surname at the first surprising sight, and the name reminded the old look.
So many things occurred after separation to talk about, until the bell tolled at sunset.
You would continue your trip tomorrow via Baling Passage, autumn added layers of colors to the mountain and our minds were loaded with sadness.
Converting into vernacular shows the same contents as above.
Having not seen each other for ten years, of course the current looks of both sides are very different from those in the childhood memories. However, grandpa cannot wait that long, otherwise Nathan will grow up, grandpa will grow old, and by then Nathan will not recognize me anymore! Hahaha.
Not only you do grow up, but your heart is getting more and more sensible. When your daddy traveled a few times recently, you always showed some reluctance, which is impressive. This scene reminds grandpa to a children song I learned from the Chinese textbook at my elementary school:
(Child)
It’s so dark, the wind is so strong,
Daddy went fishing, why isnt he coming home?
Listening to the wind roaring wild, I am really scared!
Daddy! Daddy! How worried we are!
As long as you come home early, it is okay even with an empty ship!
(Father)
My good baby, Daddy is back.
Full boat of fish and shrimp, how much do you see!
Exchanging ​​fish for rice and cloth, everyone can eat to full and keep warm.
Daddy is not afraid of being tired, as long as everyone is well.
This song is a portrayal of a fisherman’s family life. Not just fishermen, every father (and mother) must go out to make money in order to support their families. Even if it is windy and rainy outside, they must work hard. After they make money, they can then buy food for you to eat and drink, buy clothes for you to keep warm, buy a car to send you to school and pick you up, pay tuition for your study, and these expenses in total is the outcome of their hard work. They are not expecting a return, but your growing up healthily and improving your learning are their greatest comfort.
Since childhood, you have been pampered by your father and mother, almost inseparable. But now that you have been able to take care of yourself gradually, Dad is more comfortable taking a short business trip. Although you feel reluctant, it is only a few days apart. When he leave home, being a big brother, you should be brave, help Mommy with the housework, take care of sisters living, so that daddy will not worry during his trip. Also, grandpa will come to help, everything will be alright.
When daddy is away from home, because he is unavailable to play with you, your home will be much quieter. When the surroundings are quiet, it is a good time to concentrate on your thinking. If you use your brain power to think, you will not be bored. But where do you start? Grandpa helps you get started: thinking about how to organize your room in an orderly manner, so you can find things when you need them; thinking about how to practice your basketball dribbling skills, such as switching hands, and moving forward and backward; thinking about how to develop the habitual interest in listening, speaking, reading and writing Chinese, because the more you learn, the more confident you are; thinking about observing and learning from daddy and mommy the spirit of being a courageous person, staying calm, never giving up, etc. All are good examples for the directions of your thinking. Take your time, you have lots of quiet time to think about it and decide how you want to do it. Remember, a good start already makes half of the success.
In recent years, there is a local Taiwanese poet named Xiang Yang. Grandpa likes one of his lyrics that describes his experience about quietness and missing.  Here it is to share with you:
When the world quiets down
Missing will make sound
Wind gusts outside the window 
The zenith star is shining and blazing 
When the world quiets down
I woke up in the darkness of night, thinking of you
I was awake in a sleepless night, thinking about you
Thinking of the path that we have been walking hand in hand
              the field side that has been illuminated by firefly lanterns 
              bamboo forests, hazy fog and wetlands  
There are still streams that whisper 
When the world quiets down
Note: () is the word that grandpa helps you translate Taiwanese to Mandarin.
This is a quiet night for the poet who was missing a good time of having a night tour with high school classmates. When the whole world quiets down, without outside interference, you will hear the voice of your heart asks: Who is the person you miss most? What is your most memorable thing? You would want to share that with the face that comes to your heart. 
Autumn is coming, what a good day. Sky is high and air is refreshing. it’s a good time for a walk. Last month when your family went to Seattle for hiking in the mountain, you were strolling in the pine forests. How relaxing and comfortable that was! When daddy is on the road, if you really miss him, you may want to ask Mommy and your sister to take a walk together, talking while walking, chatting about the school, chatting about daddy, just like one of the Tang poetry (written by We Yingwu) you learned (grandpa just changed one character in it):
Think of daddy in this autumn night, taking a walk in such a cool day. Pine seeds fall in the vacant mountain and the quiet people should be still awake.
Like the parks near your home, there are also many tall pine forests in Seattle. In the autumn night, strolling along the mountain side when the pine seeds sprinkle down quietly, it should be a beautiful scene. At this moment in Seattle, if your daddy is still awake, he must also enjoy the autumn scenery, and quietly miss both Nathan and sister.
Good night, wish you a good nights sleep......No worries, at the moment you wake up, daddy will be right back.
Miss you, 
Grandpa
