TWO SEIZURES OF THE SOUL

For Vito Paolo Quatrocchi

"Just for today, may Your face not be hidden from me."

St Therese of Lisieux

I.

In the gap between two seizures of the soul,

The word enfolds the word,

The breeze warms the breeze,

And the hand of love extends the world

Far into the extreme caress of the poem.

And we remain dazzled, marvelling, fascinated

Under the rippling deep-feeling yews

In the dense indigo of the night,

Seeking in what begins on our lips

The silent path that hastens

Towards the unaccustomed, the unknown, the never seen.

And suddenly everything becomes incorruptible ecstasy,

Golden yellow light

And immortal sweetness!

II.

"Cast the mantle of Your richness over my poverty and my mediocrity."

Dhu'l Nun al-Misri

Who then could love you, O you,

Unquestionable, limitless knowledge of love?

Intimate, profound, secret eternal knowledge!

Poem built on so much silence,

On so many ecstatic solitudes

Where the almandine freshness of fountains,

The silky blaze of summer,

The crystal breath of tall rose bushes

Sway their elusive splendours !

Who could express such happiness,

Bliss, fleshly contentment

In the fragrant July rain?

Who? Who could know with their spring-gushing fingers,

How to open, without swooning, the ultimate Book

Of tenderness?

Who?

灵魂的两次发病

-- Vito Paolo Quatrocchi

就只今天,愿你的脸不躲开我。”

St Therese of Lisieux (注一)

1.

在灵魂两次发病的空档,

话展露话,

微风温暖微风,

而爱的手将世界深深伸入

诗的极致爱抚。

而我们持续目炫,惊奇,入迷

在深沉感觉起伏的紫杉下

在夜的浓密靛蓝里,

寻觅那起自我们唇上的

静默的途径

匆匆奔赴那陌生,未知,见所未见。

突然所有的东西变成压抑不住的狂喜,

金黄的光

永恒的甜蜜!

2.

“用你的丰富多彩覆盖我的贫困平庸”。

Dhu'l Nun al-Misri2

谁能爱你呢,啊你,

无可置疑的,无穷知识的爱?

精湛,深刻,秘密的永恒知识!

建构于这么多沉默,

这么多狂喜的孤寂之上的诗

那里榴子石清新的喷泉,

夏日丝绸般的火焰,

高大玫瑰花丛晶莹的气息

摇曵着它们难以捉摸的辉煌!

谁能表达这样的快乐,

极乐,肉体的满足

在芳香的七月雨中?

谁?谁能用他们泉涌的手指感知,

如何打开,不致晕眩,那终极的

温柔之书?
