The Chimney-Sweeper (I)

William Blake

When my mother died I was very young,
And my father sold me while yet my tongue
Could scarcely cry “‘Weep! ‘weep! weep! ‘weep!”
So your chimneys I sweep, and in soot I sleep.

There’s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head,
That curled like a lamb’s back, was shaved; so I said,
“‘Hush, Tom! never mind it, for, when your head’s bare,
You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.”

And so he was quiet, and that very night,
As Tom was a-sleeping, he had such a sight! -
That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, and Jack,
Were all of them lock’d up in coffins of black;

And by came an Angel who had a bright key,
And he opened the coffins, and set them all free;
Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing, they run
And wash in a river, and shine in the Sun.

Then naked and white, all their bags left behind,
They rise upon clouds, and sport in the wind:
And the Angel told Tom, if he’d be a good boy,
He’d have God for his father, and never want joy.

And so Tom awoke; and we rose in the dark,
And got with our bags and our brushes to work.
Tho’ the morning was cold, Tom was happy and warm;
So, if all do their duty, they need not fear harm.


扫烟囱孩子①

威廉·布雷克

我母亲死的时候,我还小得很,
我父亲把我拿出来卖给了别人,
我当时还不大喊得清“扫呀——扫,”
我就扫你们烟囱,裹煤屑睡觉。

有个小托姆,头发卷得像小羊头,
剃光的时候,哭得好伤心,好难受,
我就说:“小托姆,不要紧,光了脑袋,
大起来煤屑就不会糟蹋你白头发。”

他就安安静静了,当天夜里,
托姆睡着了,事情就来得稀奇,
他看见千千万万的扫烟囱小孩
阿猫阿狗全都给锁进了黑棺材。

后来来了个天使,拿了把金钥匙,
开棺材放出了孩子们(真是好天使!)
他们就边跳,边笑,边跑过草坪,
到河里洗了澡,太阳里晒得亮晶晶。

光光的,白白的,把袋子都抛个一地,
他们就升上了云端,在风里游戏;
“只要你做个好孩子,”天使对托姆说,
“上帝会做你的父亲,你永远快乐。”

托姆就醒了;屋子里黑咕隆咚,
我们就起来拿袋子、扫帚去做工。
大清早尽管冷,托姆的心里可温暖;
这叫作:各尽本分,就不怕灾难。

(卞之琳 译)
