Preface


炼金术士拿起一本书,那是商队中的某个人带来的。书没有封面,但可以辨认出作者的名字:奥斯卡.王尔德。在翻阅那本书的时候,他看到一篇关于水仙花的故事。

The alchemist took a book which was brought by someone in the caravan. The book did not have a cover but its name can still be recognised: Oscar Wilde. While leafing through the book, he saw a story about narcissus.


炼金术士知道这个关于水仙花的传说。一个英俊少年,天天到湖边去欣赏自己的美貌。他对自己的容貌如痴如醉,甚至有一天掉进湖里,溺水身亡。他落水的地方,长出一朵鲜花,人们称之为水仙。

The alchemist knows the story about narcissus. A handsome boy went to the lakeside to enjoy his beautiful face every day. He was so drenched in his beauty that he dropped in the lake and drowned.


奥斯卡.王尔德却不是这样结束故事的。他写道,水仙少年死后,山林女神来到湖边,看见一湖淡水变成了一潭咸咸的泪水。

But Oscar Wilde did not end the story like this. He wrote, the forest goddess went to the lake and saw a lake of fresh water was changed into salty tears.

 

“你为何流泪?”山林女神问道。

“Why are you crying?” asked the forest goddess.


“我为水仙少年流泪。”湖泊回答。

“I am crying for narcissus boy.” The lake answered.


“你为水仙少年流泪,我们一点也不惊讶。”山林女神说道,“我们总是跟在他后面,在林中奔跑,但是,只有你有机会如此真切地看到他英俊的面庞。“

“We’re not surprised that you cried for him.” The forest goddess said. “We always run after him, but only you have the chance to see his beautiful face so vividly.”


“水仙少年长得漂亮吗?“湖泊问道。

“Is the narcissus boy good looking?” asked the lake.


“还有谁比你更清楚这一点呢?“山林女神惊讶地回答,”他每天都在你身边啊。“

“Can anyone know it clearer than you?” The forest goddess answered surprisingly, “he is by your side everyday!”


湖泊沉默了一会儿,最后开口说:“我是为水仙少年流泪,可我从来没有注意到他的容貌。我为他流泪,是因为每次他面对我的时候,我都能从他眼睛深处看到我自己美丽的映像。“

After a moment of silence, the lake finally said: “I do cry for narcissus boy, but I have never noticed what he looks like. I cried for him because I can see the beautiful image of my own from the depth of his eyes while he was looking at me.”


“多美的故事啊!“炼金术士感慨。

“What a beautiful story!” The alchemist sighed.
