D.S.的唱片有感

--Chairil Anwar (1922-1949),羅浩原

 

一位女子又唱起了

哀歌,在那遙遠的海灘,

孤獨的水手在蔚藍的海上,正因

他們最終忘記了什麼是恩愛。

 

聲音越來越高昂,

聽著歌的我們看見了暮色

親吻愛撫著女子的臉頰

及半似真半似夢的白色長衣。

 

我們感到幸福必將到來

水手在港口接受擁抱

而在悲傷、灰暗的國度

人們將重獲歡樂,尋得正道

 

動聽的歌曲!——妳難道不理解嗎

我心碎哭泣的小妹

被遺棄的人將一直遺世獨立

即便在最遠的國度太陽也一去不返?

 

1946

 

 

Buat Album D.S.

--Chairil Anwar

 

Seorang gadis lagi menjanji

Lagu derita dipantai jang djauh,

Kelasi bersendiri dilaut biru, dari

Mereka jang sudah lupa bersuka.

 

Suaranja pergi terus meninggi,

Kami jang mendengar melihat sendja

Mentjium belai sigadis pada pipi

Dan gaum putihnja sebagian dari mimpi.

 

Kami rasa bahgia tentu ‘kan tiba,

Kelasi mendapat dekapan dipelabuhan

Dan dinegeri kelabu jang berhiba

Penduduknja bersinar lagi, dapat tudjuan

 

Lagu merdu!—apa mengertikah adikku ketjil

jang menangis mengiris hati

Bahwa pelarian akan terus tinggal terpentjil,

Djuga dinegeri djauh itu surja tidak kembali?

 

 

D.S.: For Her Album

--Chairil Anwar, translated by Burton Raffel

 

A girl is singing

A sad song on a far-away shore,

A sailor is lonely on the blue sea, because

Of these who forgot to be happy.

 

Her voice goes higher and higher,

We who listen watch the twilight

Kiss and caress her cheek

And her white dress, like something in a dream.

 

We’re sure that happiness will come,

The sailor will be embraced at the harbor

And in that sad, grey country

People will rejoice, finding the True Way.

 

A marvelous song!—But do you understand,

My sadly sobbing little sister,

That a deserter will always be deserted,

And that even in that far country the sun never goes backward?
