人實在惡做


  • 《人實首惡做》

招子庸作,金文泰譯

人實首惡做,都冇日開眉。俾極真情待汝,汝都未知。我為汝淚流長日抖氣,我想過做人咁樣子汝話有乜心機。汝呌我箇箇待到咁真心唔得咁易,總係見君君啞我就唔肯負却箇段佳期。莫話珠江盡是無情地,今日為情字牽纏所以正得咁痴。做乜開口就把薄情看待我地,怪得汝時常相聚都係貌合神離。呢會汝會念奴,奴亦都會念汝。唉唔好咁厭氣,做箇存終始。等汝花粉叢中識吓我地女兒

 

The task of mankind

 

The task of mankind is cruel; never can we smooth care from our brows.

What though I deal trueheartedly by you, you are not yet aware thereof.

For your sake I weep and sigh the livelong day.

Think you I have the heart to play the woman on this wise?

You bid me deal by all men with heart as true as mine to thine; but that is not so easy.

Only when I see my lord! Then I am loth to waste the auspicious hour.

Say not the Pearl River is a place utterly void of passion;

Today for sake of the word ‘passion’ I am tied in trammels; therefore am I thus enamoured.

Why, whene’er you open your lips, do you flout us with your fickleness?

Strange that, for the most part, in intercourse with us your face meets ours, but your spirit is fled elsewhere.

If now you will remember your handmaid, your handmaiden will remember you.

Ah! ‘tis ill to breathe such disdain for us.

You should be constant from first to last.

Wait till in the cluster of flowers and rouge you come to understand girls such as we.
