Smaointe…

四月 25, 2009

多年前在钢琴老师家听了Enya的《Shepherd Moons》,当时就特别喜欢“Smaointe…”这首曲。在后来的日子里,我翻找了好多Enya的精选集,都不见这曲的踪影。这可是Enya最好的作品啊,至少我是这么觉得。当Uillean pipes的声音响起时,思念和悲伤随晚风飘散,不知是否能抵达它们想去的地方。

我听歌不爱听歌词。也因为这独特的pattern,我也偏好听一些我听不懂的语言,就像这一首。但是我还是找来了这歌词的英译。不过,要完整不受干扰(不必要的联想作用)地聆听此曲,不看歌词会更好。

Irish Gaelic

Smaointe…
(D’Aodh Agus Do Mháire Uí Dhúgain)

Éist le mo chroí,
Go brónach a choích’
Tá mé caillte gan tú
‘s do bhean chéile.
An grá mór i do shaoil
Treoraí sé mé.
Bígí liomsa i gcónaí
Lá ‘s oích’.

Curfá:

Ag caoineadh ar an uaigneas mór
Na deora, go brónach
‘Na gcodladh ins an uaigh ghlas chiúin
Faoi shuaimhneas, go domhain.
Aoibhneas a bhí
Ach d’imigh sin
Sé lean tú
Do fhear chéile.
An grá mór i do shaoil
Treoraí sé mé.
Bígí liomsa i gcónaí
Lá ‘s oích’.

Curfá

Smaointe, ar an lá
‘Raibh sibh ar mo thaobh
Ag inse scéil
Ar an dóigh a bhí
Is cuimhin liom an lá
Gan ghá ‘s gan ghruaim
Bígí liomsa i gcónaí
Lá ‘s oích’.

Translation:

A thought

(To my maternal grandparents,
literally: “For Hugh and Mary Duggan”)

Listen to my heart,
Forever sad
I’m lost without you
and your wife.
The great love in your lives [1]
Will guide me.
Be (plural) with me always
Day and night.

Chorus:

Weeping due to the great loneliness
The tears, sorrowfully
Asleep in the quiet green grave
In a deep peace.
There was blissfulness
But that is gone
You followed
Your husband.
The great love in your lives
Will guide me.
Be (plural) with me always
Day and night.

Chorus

A thought, on the day
You were (both) at my side
Telling tales
Of how things were.
I remember the day
Carefree and happy [2]
Be (plural) with me always
Day and night.

[1] The meaning of this phrase in this context is “the love that was shown by the two of you”.
[2] Literally “without need and without gloom”.
