They had a high-time supper by the fire,
他们用火做了一顿丰盛的晚餐,
 a can of beans each, fried potatoes and a quart of whiskey on shares, 
每人吃了一罐豆子,一些炸土豆,分着喝了一夸脱威士忌。
sat with their backs against a log, boot soles and copper jeans rivets hot, 
他们坐着,背靠在木头上,鞋底和牛仔裤的铜铆钉都被烤的发热,
swapping the bottle while the lavender sky emptied of color and the chill air drained down, 
他们交换着瓶子喝酒,薰衣草色的天空逐渐变浅,寒冷的空气也渐渐消融,
drinking, smoking cigarettes, getting up every now and then to piss, firelight throwing a sparkle in the arched stream,
他们喝酒,抽烟,偶尔站起来撒尿,火光中迸出一个火星(这是爱的火星,落入弯弯的小溪里。
 tossing sticks on the fire to keep the talk going, talking horses and rodeo, roughstock events, wrecks and injuries sustained, 
他们一直在拨动着篝火让交谈继续下去。他们聊马和竞技,那些艰难的日子,那些承受过的变故和伤痛,
the submarine Thresher lost two months earlier with all hands and how it must have been in the last doomed minutes,
那艘两个月前带着全体船员失踪的潜水艇“长尾鲨号”,最后一刻是怎么在劫难逃的
 dogs each had owned and known, the draft, Jack’s home ranch where his father and mother held on, Ennis’s family place folded years ago after his folks died, the older brother in Signal and a married sister in Casper. 
还有那些出名的事件,对未来的描绘,杰克的家在他父母经营的大牧场里,埃尼斯的家在几年前他父母死后就垮了,哥哥在西格纳尔,已婚的姐姐在卡斯珀。
Jack said his father had been a pretty well known bullrider years back but kept his secrets to himself, never gave Jack a word of advice, never came once to see Jack ride, though he had put him on the woolies when he was a little kid.
杰克说他父亲多年前曾经是一个相当出名的牛仔,但一直瞒着杰克,从没给杰克提过一句建议,也从没看过杰克的骑术,尽管在杰克小时候,他曾经把他抱到了羊背上。
 Ennis said the kind of riding that interested him lasted longer than eight seconds and had some point to it.
埃尼斯说那种能(在牛背)坚持八秒以上的骑术很吸引他,他为此想了很多点子。
 Money’s a good point, said Jack, and Ennis had to agree.
攒钱是个好点子,杰克说,埃尼斯不得不表示赞同。
 They were respectful of each other’s opinions, each glad to have a companion where none had been expected. 

他们非常尊重对方的想法,俩人都很高兴,没想到在这能有个同伴。

终于完成了
