2014.07.28【中译英】牧羊少年奇幻之旅(2)



他心说:“真想多睡一会儿。”他做了个梦,和上周做的梦一模一样,而且又是梦没做完就醒了。

His heart said: I really want to get more sleep. He had a dream which was exactly like last week’s. And again, he woke up before the dream ended.


男孩爬起来,喝了两口酒,然后拿起牧羊棍,呼唤仍在沉睡的羊群。他早已注意到,只要他一醒,大多数的羊也都开始醒过来,仿佛有种神秘的力量把他的生命同那些羊的生命联系在一起。两年来,那些羊跟着他走遍了这篇大地,四处寻找水和食物。

He got up, drunk some wine, then brought his shepherd staff and woke up the sleeping sheep. He had already noticed that most of the sheep would wake up as soon as he did, which looked like there was a mystery magical power to link his life and the sheep’s together. During the last two years, these sheep walked through this land with him, looking for water and food.


“这些羊太熟悉我了,已经了解我的作息时间了。”他喃喃自语。略加思索,他又想,事情也可能正相反:是他已经熟悉了羊群的生活习性。

“These sheep know me too well to know my quitting time.” He said to himself. After a moment’s thought, he supposed it was him who knew the sheep’s living habit on the contrary.


然而,总有一些羊会拖延一会儿才醒。男孩就用牧羊棍挨个捅醒它们。同时呼唤着羊的名字。他一直坚信,羊能听懂他说的话。因此,他时不时给羊群读一些给他自己留下深刻印象的书籍的章节,或者对羊群诉说自己在野外的孤独和快乐,或者评论一下在经常路过的城镇见到的新鲜事。

But there were always some sheep would delay a moment to wake up. The boy would wake them up with his shepherd staff one by one while calling their names. He insisted to believe that the sheep can understand what he said. So from time to time he would read some impressive chapters of the books to the sheep, or tell the sheep the loneliness and happiness he experienced in the wild land, or comment on the new things he met in the towns he often passed by.


不过,最近两天, 他的话题只有一个,就是那个女孩。一个商人的女儿,住在距离这里四天路程的一个镇上。他只到那里去过一次,是在去年。那个商人是一家纺织品店的老板。他喜欢看人当着他的面剪羊毛,以防别人弄虚作假。一个朋友指点男孩去那家店铺,于是他便赶着羊群到了那里。

But in recently two days, his only topic was the girl who was a merchant’s daughter and lived in a town four days’ journey away. He had only been there once. It was last year. The merchant owned a textiles shop and he enjoyed watching people shearing sheep in front of him to avoid any charting. A friend asked the boy to go to the shop, so he drove the sheep there.


“我有点羊毛要卖。”他对那个商人说。

“I want to sell some wool.” He said to the merchant.
