塔可夫斯基的树
在哥特兰
我们寻找着一棵树
一棵在大师的最后一部电影中
出现的树
一棵枯死而又奇迹般
复活的树

我们去过无数的海滩
成片的松林在风中起伏
但不是那棵树

在这岛上
要找到一棵孤单的树真难啊

问当地人,当地人说
孤单的树在海边很难存活

一棵孤单的树,也许只存在于
那个倔犟的俄国人的想象里

一棵孤单的树
连它的影子也会背弃它

除非有一个孩子每天提着一桶
比他本身还要重的水来

除非它生根于
泪水的播种期

Seeking the Tree
— In Memory of Andrei Tarkovsky
We come to Gotland to look for a lone tree—
The tree in your last film that
Grows leaves after death

We search along the coast and find
No single tree by itself
Only woods and forests
“Impossible to survive alone”
On this windy island.  A tree stands by itself
In your mind only

Even its shadow will betray it
Unless a boy waters it everyday with a bucket
Taller than himself

Unless the tree grows out of a seed of tears
