When I heard the Learn'd Astronomer

Walt Whitman

WHEN I heard the learn'd astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.

一堂天文课

沃尔特·惠特曼

当我听那位博学的天文学家的讲座时,
当那些证明、数据一栏一栏地排列在我眼前时,
当那些表格、图解展现在我眼前要我去加、去减、去测定时,
当我坐在报告厅听着那位天文学家演讲、听着响起一阵阵掌声时,
很快地我竟莫名其妙地厌倦起来,
于是我站了起来悄悄地溜了出去,
在神秘而潮湿的夜风中,一遍又一遍,
静静地仰望星空。

(罗良功译)

[注]此诗是《草叶集》( Leaves of Grass,1900)中的第180首。
