Holy Sonnets(Divine Meditations or Divine Sonnets)no. 6 by John Donne, around 1607
聖詩第六首 英國詩人約翰.朵恩 (譯功業餘僅供參考)
This is my play's last scene; here heavens appoint
這是我劇本的最後一景; 在此由上天所指派
My pilgrimage's last mile; and my race,
我朝聖之旅的最後一哩; 也是我的競賽
Idly, yet quickly run, hath this last pace,
緩緩地, 卻又敏捷地跑, 使這最後一步
My span's last inch, my minute's latest point;
是我跨出的最後那吋, 我測時的最晚那個點
And gluttonous death will instantly unjoint
而後貪食的死亡便將即刻拆解
My body and my soul, and I shall sleep a space;
我的軀殼與我的靈魂, 而我將會在空白中睡去
But my'ever-waking part shall see that face
但我曾醒著的體幹將會看見那個面容
Whose fear already shakes my every joint.
對她的敬畏已抖顫我每個關節
Then, as my soul to'heaven, her first seat, takes flight,
其後, 在我的靈魂昇往天堂之時, 她的首座起飛
And earth-born body in the earth shall dwell,
這塵土所生的軀體將會停駐凡世間
So fall my sins, that all may have their right,
我的罪則因而墜落, 凡此都得到正義
To where they'are bred, and would press me, to hell.
去到那滋養它們, 也會折磨我的地方, 去到煉獄
Impute me righteous, thus purg'd of evil,
將義理歸功於我, 滌淨罪孽
For thus I leave the world, the flesh, the devil.
從而我離開這世界, 這血肉之軀, 這妖魔

- Time for your break?
- Yeah.

Take a break.

"This is my play's last scene
"Here
"Heavens appoint
my pilgrimage's last mile
"And my race
"Idly, yet quickly run
"Hath this last pace
"My span's last inch
"My minute's last point
"And gluttonous death
"Will instantly unjoint my body and soul"

John Donne...

I've always particularly liked that poem.

In the abstract.

Now I find the image of...

my minute's last point...

a little too, shall we say...

pointed.

I don't mean to complain
but I am becoming very sick.



Very sick. Ultimately sick, as it were.
