ODE: INTIMATIONS OF IMMORTALITY FROM RECOLLECTIONS
OF EARLY CHILDHOOD

原文與注釋(Text and Annotation): IV

4. (Summary)
Ye blessed Creatures, I have heard the call  
    Ye to each other make; I see  
The heavens laugh with you in your jubilee;  
    My heart is at your festival,
40
      My head hath its coronal,  
The fulness of your bliss, I feel---feel it all.  
        O evil day! if I were sullen  
        While Earth herself is adorning,  
            This sweet May-morning,
45
        And the children are culling  
            On every side,  
        In a thousand valleys far and wide,  
        Fresh flowers; while the sun shines warm,  
And the babe leaps up on his mother's arm:
50
        I hear, I hear, with joy I hear!  
        ---But there's a tree, of many, one,  
A single field which I have look'd upon,  
Both of them speak of something that is gone:  
          The Pansy at my feet
55
          Doth the same tale repeat:  
Whither is fled the visionary gleam?  
Where is it now, the glory and the dream?

幻象之光逃往何處?
榮耀與夢今在何方?
