奴等你


• 《奴等你》 Your handmaid awaits you
招子庸輯,金文泰譯

「打乜主意,重使乜思疑。你唔帶得奴奴你便早日話過妹知。我只估話等郎至此落在呢處烟花地,捨得我肯跟人去上岸乜天時。只望共你敘吓悲歡談吓往事,點想你失意還鄉事盡非。一定唆攪有人將我出氣,話我好似水性楊花逐浪飛。呢陣講極冰清你亦唔多在意,萬般愁緒只有天知。況且遠近盡知奴係等你,今日半途丟手敢就冇的挨依。枉費我往日待你箇副心腸今日憑在你處置,漫道你問心難過就係死亦難欺。唔見面講透苦心死亦唔得眼閉。君呀,你有心憐我你便早日開嚟,見面講透苦心死亦無乜掛意。唉!休阻滯。但得早一劇逢君我就算早一刻離別。」

What do you decide? Why are you in doubt?
If you cannot redeem your handmaid, you were better have told me betimes.
I trow that my tarrying for my lord till now has sunk me into yon place of flowers and vapour.
So, were I fain to follow a man up the bank of safety, what chance have I now?
I did but hope to converse with you of sorrow and gladness, to talk of bygone things.
How could I know that you would lose your purpose and utterly nullify all thought of returning home.
Verily some one has incited you to vent your anger upon me.
You say that my nature is as water, and that like willow-blossom I drift adown the waves.
But now that my words are very purity, you pay me little heed.
Only heaven knows the myriad threads of my sad thoughts.
Moreover, far and near ‘tis known full well that your handmaid awaits you.
To-day in mid-road you cast my hand from yours. Therefore I have nothing whereon to rely.
Vainly I have wasted the heart’s emotion which I gave you in bygone time: To-day I suffer you to deal with me as you please.
Say not that, if you ask your heart, you are ill content: even were I dead, such deceit were hard.
Yet till I see you face to face and speak fully of my heart’s bitterness, death cannot close my eyes.
My lord, if you have the heart to pity me, you were best set out hitherwards betimes.
If I see you face to face and speak fully of my heart’s bitterness, I shall reck little even of death.
Ah! Away with hindrances!
Yet if I meet you an hour earlier, then meseems I shall but part from you an hour the sooner.
