Authorship著作


(Rabindranath Tagore )

你说爸爸写了许多书,但是我却不懂,他写的是什么东西。
他整个晚上把他写的念给你听,但你可真的弄清他的用意?
妈妈,你给我们讲的故事多么美妙啊!我不知道爸爸为什么不能那样写书呢?
难道他从来没有听他自己的妈妈讲过故事,巨人呀,公主呀?还有仙女?
还是已经把那些故事完全忘记?
常常不按时洗澡,你不得不去叫他一百多次。
你总是要等着,把他的饭菜热好让他吃,但是他还是忘到一边,写呀写下去。
爸爸老是玩他那写书的游戏。
可我一走进爸爸的房里去玩,你就过来喊我:“这孩子多么顽皮!”
如果我稍微出一点声,你就要说:“你没看见爸爸在工作吗?”
老是写呀写的,有什么乐趣?
我一拿起爸爸的钢笔、铅笔,像他一模一样地在他的书上写着,——a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i——你为什么跟我生气呢,妈妈?
爸爸写的时候,你却从来不说他一句。
我爸爸耗费了那么大堆大堆的纸张,妈妈,你似乎根本没有意见。
但是,如果我只取了一张,叠一只小船,你却要说:“这孩子,你真讨厌!”
而爸爸拿黑道道涂满纸的两面,糟蹋纸张,没有个完,你又怎么来看?
—— 选自《新月集》  

You say that Father writes a lot of books, but what he writes I don't understand.
He was reading to you all the evening, but could you really make out what he meant?
What nice stories, mother, you can tell us! Why can't father write stories like that, I wonder?
Did he never hear from his own mother stories of giants and fairies and princesses?
Has he forgotten them all?
Often when he gets late for his bath you have to go and call him a hundred times.
You wait and keep his dishes warm for him, but he goes on writing and forgets.
Father always plays at making books.
If I ever go to play in father's room, you come and call me, "what a naughty child!"
If I make the slightest noise, you say, "Don't you see that father's at his work?"
What's the fun of always writing and writing?
When I take up father's pen or pencil and write upon his books just as he does,—a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,—why do you get cross with me, then, mother?
You never say a word when father writes.
When my father wastes such heaps of paper, mother, you don't seem to mind at all.
But if I take only one sheet to make a boat with, you say, "Child, how troublesome you are!"
What do you think of father's spoiling sheets and sheets of paper with black marks all over on both sides?
