  可爱的南京

  Nanjing the Beloved City

  南京,她有层出不穷的风流人物,和彪炳千秋的不朽业绩。大都会特有的凝聚力,吸引了无数风云人物、仁人志士在这里角逐争雄,一逞豪彦。从孙权、谢安到洪秀全、孙中山,从祖冲之、葛洪到李时珍、郑和,从刘勰、萧统到曹雪芹、吴敬梓,从王羲之、顾恺之到徐悲鸿、傅抱石,还有陶行知、杨廷宝等等,中国历史上一批杰出的政治家、军事家、科学家、文学家、艺术家、教育家、建筑家等荟萃于此,在这块钟灵毓秀的土地上一圆他们的辉煌之梦。他们是中华民族的优秀儿女,巍巍钟山、滚滚长江养育了他们,为他们提供了施展抱负的舞台,他们也以自己的雄才大略、聪明智慧为中华民族的灿烂文明增添了流光溢彩的新篇章。

  Nanjing has witnessed the continuous emergence of many distinguished talents and noble hearts as well as monumental achievements that shone through the ages. Attracted by her special appeal, a great number of powerful figures and people actuated by high ideals have stayed in or frequented this metropolis to contend for the lead or to give play to their genius and virtues. Military commanders such as Sun Quan and Xie An; political leaders such as Hong Xiuquan and Dr. Sun Yat-sen; scientists like Zu Chongzhi, Ge Hong, Li Shizhen and Zhenghe; men of letters such as Liu Xie, Xiao Tong, Cao Xueqin and Wu Jingzi; artists like Wang Xizhi, Gu Kaizhi, Xu Beihong and Fu Baoshi; educators such as Tao Xingzhi; and architects like Yang Tingbao—all these renowned historical figures used to settle on this blessed land to have their splendid dreams fulfilled. The towering Purple Mountains and billowing Yangtze River nurtured them and provided them with arenas in which to realize their aspirations. By virtue of their genius, vision, and sagacity, these best and brightest sons and daughters of the nation made spectacular contributions to the resplendent Chinese civilization.

  南京,她自新中国建立以来发生的巨大而深刻的变化更加使人欢欣鼓舞。从1949年4月23日始,人民真正成为这座古老城市的主人。金陵回春,古城新生,昔日饱尝的屈辱和灾难,至此如同梦魇终被摆脱。人民在自己的土地上辛勤劳作,把古老南京装扮得面貌一新。特别是近十年几来,改革开放又给这座美丽的名城注入了新的活力,崭新的工业、通达的运输、如画的城市建设、兴盛的第三产业、多姿的文化生活,都使这个具有古都特色的现代都市焕发出勃勃英姿。孙中山先生所预言的:“南京将来之发展未可限量也”,正在逐步成为现实。

  The tremendous changes that have taken place in Nanjing since New China was founded are even more inspiring, just as the much quoted couplet from a poem written by the late Chairman Mao Zedong on the occasion of the liberation of the city on April 23, 1949 has it:

  The city, a tiger crouching, a dragon curling, outshines its ancient glories;

  In heroic triumph heaven and earth have been overturned.

  Balmy spring winds returned to bring new life to this historic city, of which the common people came to be the genuine masters. The night marish sufferings and humiliations of the past were left behind once and for all. The citizens of Nanjing have been working hard to give this age-old town a new appearance. Especially for the past ten years or more, the country’s reform and opening-up policy has infused new vigor into this beautiful and famous city. Newly built industries, an efficient transportation network extending in all directions, picturesque urban construction, a booming tertiary industry, a varied and colorful cultural life, all these and more added charm and vitality to this modern metropolis, which retains somehow the ambiance and features of an ancient capital. The prophecy of Dr. Sun Yat-sen father of modern China that “Nanjing will have a future that knows no bounds” is becoming true.

  南京,这座古老而年轻的历史文化名城,是多么的可爱!

  Nanjing, an old city with a rich and celebrated past, yet vigorous in her new youth-how lovely she is!

  A Few Memories of Mr. Lu Xun

  萧红

  Xiao Hong

  鲁迅先生家里的花瓶,好像画上所见的西洋女子用以取水的瓶子,灰蓝色,有点从瓷釉而自然堆起的纹痕,瓶口的两边,还有两个瓶耳,瓶里种的是几棵万年青。

  Mr. Lu Xun had a plant pot in his sitting-room. It looked like the jar European women fetchedwater with, as shown in paintings. It was of a bluish-gray, with a few ripples naturally embossedwith its own glaze and, on either side of it, there was a handle close to the top. Planted in itwas some evergreen.

  我第一次看到这花的时候,我就问过:

  The first time I visited Mr. Lu Xun I asked:

  “这叫什么名字?屋中既不生火炉,也不冻死?”

  “What is the name of this plant? There is no fire in the room, but it is not frozen.”

  每一次,走进鲁迅家里去,那是快近黄昏的时节,而且是个冬天,所以那楼下室稍微有一点暗,同时鲁迅先生的纸烟,当它离开嘴边而停在桌角的地方,那烟纹的卷痕一直升腾到他有一些白丝的发梢那么高。而且再升腾就看不见了。

  It was toward evening one winter day. The sitting-room downstairs was dim. Mr. Lu Xun wassmoking a cigarette. When he took it away from his lips, holding it between his fingers at thecorner of his desk, small puffs rose as high as the top of his grayish hair and, further up, theywere no longer visible.

  “这花,叫‘万年青’,永久这样!”他在花瓶旁边的烟灰盒中,抖掉了纸烟上的灰烬,那红的烟火,就越红了,好像一朵小花似的,和他的袖口相距离着。

  “This plant is called evergreen. It’s always like that.” He flicked the cigarette ash to the ashtraynext to the pot and the cigarette grew redder still like a small flower glimmering two or threeinches from the cuff of his sleeve.

  “这花不怕冻?”以后,我又问过,记不得是在什么时候了。

  “It is not affected by the cold, is it?” I asked another time, not remembering exactly when.

  许先生说:“不怕的,最耐久!”而且她还拿着瓶口给我摇着。

  “No, it is not.” said Mrs. Lu. “It’s a very tough plant.” She held the pot by the top, shaking it forme to see.

  我还看到了那花瓶的底边是一些圆石子,以后,因为熟识了的缘故,我就自己动手看过一两次,又加上这花瓶是常常摆在客厅的黑色长桌上,又加上自己是来自寒带的北方,对于这在四季里都不凋零的植物,总带着一点惊奇。而现在这“万年青”依旧活着,每次到许先生家去,看到那束花,有时仍站在那黑色的长桌上,有时站在鲁迅先生照像的前面。

  I noticed there were some pebbles around the bottom. Later, as I got to know them better,went up to the black table once or twice for a closer look at the plant. As I came from the coldnorth I always wondered why this plant did not wither even in winter.

  花瓶是换了,用一个玻璃瓶装着,看得到淡黄色的须根,站在瓶底。

  The plant was now still alive. Sometimes it was placed on the black table, other times in front ofMr. Lu Xun’s photograph. But it had been transplanted into a glass pot through which theiryellowish roots could be seen at the bottom.

  有时候许先生一面和我们谈论着,一面检查房中所有的花草。看一看叶子是不是黄了?该剪掉的剪掉,该洒水的洒水,因为不停地动作是她的习惯。有时候就检查着这“万年青”,有时候就谈着鲁迅先生,就在他的照像前面谈着,但那感觉,却像谈着古人那么悠远了。

  Mrs. Lu would chat with us while moving from one plant to another, checking if any of them hadturned yellow or needed clipping or watering. She would keep herself busy in her room.Sometimes she examined the evergreen, sometimes she talked of Mr. Lu Xun, in front of hisphotograph, as if of someone of remote past.

  至于那花瓶呢?站在墓地的青草上面去了,而且瓶底已经丢失,虽然丢失了也就让它空空地站在墓边。我所看到的是从春天一直站到秋天;它一直站到邻旁墓头的石榴树开了花而后结成了石榴。

  But where was the pot now? It was standing in the graveyard, in the grass, its bottom missing.The bottomless, empty pot had been there spring through autumn until the pomegranate atthe head of the neighboring tomb had blossomed and borne fruit.

  从开炮以后,只有许先生绕道去过一次,别人就没有去过。当然那墓草是长得很高了,而且荒了,还说什么花瓶,恐怕鲁迅先生的瓷半身像也要被荒了的草埋没到他的胸口。

  Since the Japanese bombardment of Shanghai only Mrs. Lu has made a detour to visit thetomb, but no others have ever been there. The tomb must have been overgrown with wildgrass and the porcelain bust of Mr. Lu Xun buried up to the chest, not to mention what wouldhave happened to the pot.

  我们在这边,只能写纪念鲁迅先生的文章,而谁去努力剪齐墓上的荒草?我们是越来越远了,但无论多么远,那荒草是总要记在心上的。

  As for us over here, there is not much we can do but write some memorial articles. But whowill go and trim the grass on his tomb? We are getting further and further away from him, butno matter how far away we are, we must remember the grass on his tomb.

  苗族龙船节

  The Miao Dragon-Boat Festival

  龙船节,是黔东南清水江上苗族人民最盛大的节日。节日里,聚会的苗族同胞,每年有三四万人。

  The Dragon-Boat Festival is the most important celebration of the Miao people, who live alongthe Qingshui Rwerin southeastem Guizhou Province. Every year between 30,000 and 40,000Miaos participate in the festivities.

  龙,在苗族人心目中是吉祥如意的象征。苗家姑娘最爱将龙的变形图案打制成银饰装点在头上,或刺绣在衣裙中,编织于围腰上。

  In the eyes of the Miaos, the dragon is a symbol of good luck. Girls like to adorn their hair withsilver omaments shaped like dragons and wear clothes embroidered or woven with dragonpatterns.

  苗族人民制作的龙船,十分精巧、美观。龙身由一只母船和两只子船捆扎而成,叫做“子母船”。无论子船还是母船,皆为独木镂空。两米多长的龙头,用水柳木雕刻,装有一对一米多长的龙角。龙头以主色不同,分为赤龙、青龙、黄龙。从施秉县的平兆到台江县的六河,每个苗族寨子都建有“龙篷”,用来保护龙船。因龙船身长25米,“龙篷”建成七格,每格将近四米长,当地又称之为“七间房”。

  The Miaos build exquisite"dragon boats," which are in reality a body formed from three canoes-one large and two small-that are strung together. A carved head, painted red, blue, or yellow, ismade from the trunk of a weeping willow tree. It is 2 meters long and sports a pair of horns. Aspecial shelter in seven parts, extending 28 meters, to house dragon boatshas been built inevery Miao village along the Qingshui River from Pingzhao in Shibing county to Liuhe in Taijiangcounty.

  每年农历5月24日至27日,几十个村寨相继举行龙船节。当地习惯,从16日开始,只要全寨薅完秧,本寨的龙船便可下水。因此,从龙船下水的早晚,可以看出各寨的农事生产进度,在勤劳的苗家人民心中,龙船节到了,地里的秧还未薅完,这是莫大的耻辱。

  The Miao Dragon-Boat Festivalis celebrated from the 24th to the 27th ofthe fifth lunar month.But according to local custom, people are allowed to send their dragon boats down the riverafter the 16th, provided that they have finished weeding their fields. The earlier appearance ofthe boats onthe river tesifies to the villagers' efficiency, and conscientious peasants con-siderit a shame not to finish weeding before the festivities begin.

  节日期间,家家户户酿米酒,包粽粑,走亲访友,宴请宾朋。出嫁的姑娘必须携带粽粑、鹅鸭等礼物回娘家,同父母兄妹团聚。龙船出发之前,一位歌师唱首吉祥歌,祝愿船只平安。

  During the festival, each family makes r:ice wine and zongba (a kind of dump-ling made ofglutinous rice) and calls on friends and relatives. Married womenvisit their parents' homesbearing gifts-zongba, geese, and ducks.

  每只龙船都有一位鼓头。他是一切活动的主持者,由全寨推选出来的德高望重的老人担任。鼓头身着长袍马褂,坐在龙颈上击鼓发令,男扮女装的鼓锣手,由十岁左右的孩童充任。40位水手,身着青布上衣、士林蓝裤子,腰系银饰花带,手握五尺木桨,整齐划一,甚是威武。水手头上的那特制的马尾斗笠,原是清水江上游苗族姑娘出嫁时的陪嫁品,却成了龙船节水手们必备的一件装饰物。

  In each boat, an old man rides straddling the dragon's neck. He is the mostrespected man inthe village, chosen by the villagers to be the coxswain. Wearing a gown and a mandarinjacket,the old man beats a drum to set the pace for the oarsmen, and severalboys about 10 years ofage, wearmg dresses,beat drums and gongs. The oarsmen, 40 in all, wield 5-foot-longwooden oars. These powerful-looking men wear horsetail-shaped hats, blue jacketsandtrousers, and embroidered waistbands pinned with silver ornaments. The hats, traditionallydowry gifts for girls from the upper reaches of theQingshui River, have become an essentialfeature of the costumes worn bythe dragon-boat oarsmen.

  苗族龙船节,与汉族的端午节不同。除时间不同外,一般不举行竞赛,主要活动是串寨子,走亲访友。清晨,龙船开始在江水中游动,所到之处,亲尤们纷纷到岸边“接龙”。龙船过寨,鸣放铁炮传告亲友,岸上以鞭炮声相呼应。亲友们上前,向船上的人各敬两杯米酒,并将礼品--鹅鸭、彩绸挂于龙头。如系女婿、姑舅等至亲,送上的礼物则是猪羊。

  The Miao Dragon-Boat Festival differs from the Han celebration. They are not celebrated on thesame date (the Hans' takes place on the fifth day of thefifth lunar month), and they followdifferent traditions. While the Hans only hold dragon-boat races during the festival, theMiaostake the opportunity to visit friends and relatives. Before a dragon-boat setsout,somebody sings an auspicious song to the boatmen, wishing them agood voyage. Young menset out in boats early in the morning. When they approach a village, they fire guns toannounce their arrival. The villagers setoff firecrackers in response and then go to meet them.The hosts present twocups of rice wine to each oarsman and then tie gifts for their relatives-ducks, geese, and colored silks-onto the heads of the dragons. The tradi-tional gifts for sons-in.law, uncles, and nephews are pigs or sheep.

  下午四时左右,龙船靠岸休息,水手们将糯米饭团和肉类放置船帮上就餐。不用碗筷,双手捏出的糯米饭团格外清香可口。岸上的妇女和小孩纷纷前来“讨路边饭”。传说,吃了龙船上的食品,能消灾免难,百事如愿。后来,这就成为传统的风俗习惯。

  At 4 p.m. the boats stop alongside the riverbank. The drummers and oars~men on the boatseat glutinous rice balls and meat with their fingers. Womenand children on the shore ask theboatmen to share their food. It is said thateating food from a dragon-boat protects one fromdisaster and gives goodluck.

  岸上,还有苗家传统的赛马、斗牛、踩鼓等活动。姑娘们身着节日盛装,应着木鼓鼓点翩翩起舞。飞歌往来,昼夜不绝,青年男女通过对歌,互相了解,建立感情,增进团结和友谊,以致结成幸福家庭。

  Horse races and bullfights are held during the festival. Girls in holiday dress dance to theaccompaniment of drums. It is not unusual for young people to meet their future spouses atthe songfests held on festival nights.
