Milos “Gift”

Gift

–Czesław Miłosz

A day so happy.
Fog lifted early, I worked in the garden.
Hummingbirds were stopping over honeysuckle flowers.
There was no thing on earth I wanted to possess.
I knew no one worth my envying him.
Whatever evil I had suffered, I forgot.
To think that once I was the same man did not embarrass me.
In my body I felt no pain.
When straightening up, I saw the blue sea and sails.
如此幸福的一天。
雾一早就散了,我在花园里干活。
蜂鸟停在忍冬花上。
这世上没有一样东西我想占有。
我知道没有一个人值得我羡慕。
任何我曾遭受的不幸,我都已忘记。
想到故我今我同为一人并不使我难为情。
在我身上没有痛苦。
直起腰来,我望见蓝色的大海和帆影。
