美文推荐:济南的冬天(中英文版)

90后励志网给大家推荐一篇老舍的优美散文:济南的冬天,老舍济南的冬天英文版,希望大家喜欢。

对于一个在北平住惯的人,像我,冬天要是不刮风,便觉得是奇迹;济南的冬天是没有风声的。对于一个刚由伦敦回来的人,像我,冬天要能看得见日光,便觉得是怪事;济南的冬天是响晴的。自然,在热带的地方,日光是永远那么毒,响亮的天气,反有点叫人害怕。可是,在北中国的冬天,而能有温晴的天气,济南真得算个宝地。

For someone like me who is used to living in Beiping, a winter without any wind is a bit of a miracle. Well, one never hears any whistling winter winds in Ji’nan. For someone like me who has just returned from London, sunshine in the winter seems quite unusual. Well, Ji’nan has bright sunny winter weather. I know that in tropical regions, the blazing sun and the perpetual harsh glare can be intimidating, but here in north China, a mild sunny winter season is a boon that makes Ji’nan a very special place indeed.

设若单单是有阳光,那也算不了出奇。请闭上眼睛想:一个老城,有山有水,全在天底下晒着阳光,暖和安适地睡着,只等春风来把它们唤醒,这是不是个理想的境界?小山整把济南围了个圈儿,只有北边缺着点口儿。这一圈小山在冬天特别可爱,好像是把济南放在一个小摇篮里,它们安静不动地低声地说:“你们放心吧,这儿准保暖和。”

But there is more than just sunshine. Close your eyes and picture to yourself: an ancient town, with mountains and lakes, dozing in the sunlight, warm and comfortable, waiting for the spring breezes toblow it awake. Doesn’t that sound idyllic? Low hills practically encircle Ji’nan, leaving just one small dip on the north side. In the winter, they are especially endearing, as if cradling the  town and murmuring to it. “Don’t worry, it’s warm and safe here.”

真的,济南的人们在冬天是面上含笑的。他们一看那些小山,心中便觉得有了着落,有了依靠。他们由天上看到山上,便不知不觉地想起:“明天也许就是春天了吧?这样的温暖,今天夜里山草也许就绿起来了吧?”就是这点幻想不能一时实现,他们也并不着急,因为这样慈善的冬天,干啥还希望别的呢!

And it’s a fact that the people of Ji’nan seem to smile throughout the cold season. All they have to do is to see those hills to feel secure and protected. Looking up and around, they say to themselves. “Maybe spring will come tomorrow. It’s so mild, maybe tonight the grass on the hills will sprout.” And even if this is just daydreaming, they don’t really mind, because with this kindly winter why wish for more?”

最妙的是下点小雪呀。看吧,山上的矮松越发的青黑,树尖上顶着一髻儿白花,好像日本看护妇。

A light snow makes the scene even prettier. Look at the short dark pine tress crowned with white nurse caps.

山尖全白了,给蓝天镶上一道银边。山坡上,有的地方雪厚点,有的地方草色还露着,这样,一道儿白,一道儿暗黄,给山们穿上一件带水纹的花衣;看着看着,这件花衣好像被风儿吹动,叫你希望看见一点更美的山的肌肤。

Or the line of white etching the hilltops like a silver hemline on the azure sky. Or the hillsides, patchily dusted so that in some places the grass shows through, clothing the slopes in a wavy pattern of tan and pale stripes. As one gazes, these seem to shift in the breeze as if baring the hill for a better look at its lovely shape.

等到快日落的时候,微黄的阳光斜射在山腰上,那点薄雪好像忽然害了羞,微微露出点粉色。就是下小雪吧,济南是受不住大雪的,那些小山太秀气!

As the sun sets, the golden rays slant on to the light snow that suddenly blushes a shy pink. Just a light snowfall, nothing heavier, turns those low hills into real beauties.

古老的济南,城里那么狭窄,城外又那么宽敞,山坡上卧着些小村庄,小村庄的房顶上卧着点雪,对,这是张小水墨画,也许是唐代的名手画的吧。

Ji’nan is an ancient town with cramped and narrow streets, but surrounded by wide open spaces. Villages dot the slopes, their cottage roofs dusted with snow. Oh yes, this is a traditional ink and wash painting and probably one by a Tang Dynasty master too.

那水呢,不但不结冰,倒反在绿萍上冒着点热气,水藻真绿,把终年贮蓄的绿色全拿出来了。天儿越晴,水藻越绿,就凭这些绿的精神,水也不忍得冻上,况且那些长枝的垂柳还要在水里照个影儿呢!

As for the lakes and ponds, they don’t freeze over, but even give off wisps of warm vapour. The water weeds remain bright green as if showing off colour stored up over the year, and the clearer the weather the greener they glow. Anyway, how can the water freeze over when all those weeping willows want to see their reflections?

看吧,由澄清的河水慢慢往上看吧,空中,半空中,天上,自上而下全是那么清亮,那么蓝汪汪的,整个的是块空灵的蓝水晶。这块水晶里,包着红屋顶,黄草山,像地毯上的小团花的灰色树影。

As you raise your eyes slowly from the transparent depths and look up gradually to the sky, everything is so clear and bright and blue, like a giant hollow block of crystal, in which are encased red roofs, tan hills and little copses, like the design on a carpet.

这就是冬天的济南。

This is Ji’nan in the winter.
