《窗邊雨如大水倒下來》(When You See the Falling Rain)

《稚子的禱聲》之後,是否可重拾譯歌的動力呢?我也不知道。

但前幾天在臉書貼了這首英文兒童詩歌的MV後,真是愛它愛到不得了,將它粵譯的決心就更加大,於是沒理會版權之類的多餘問題就開動了!

由於是首兒歌,不想把它譯得文謅謅的,便加入了大量口語化句式,而且是從前未試過的多。

窗邊雨如大水倒下來
沒玩處 可感傷悲?
想想看那雨是有它好處
為著灌漑菜與花與樹
When you see the falling rain outside,
Are you sad that you can’t play?
But just think what good all those drops can do
For the plants and trees that drink that way…

副歌:雨呀雲 邊位製造?
   點點雨串 奇恩充滿
   是上主今天體貼我哋
   神奇地降雨落蒞
   Who has made all the rain clouds?
   That send drip-drops abundantly?
   It is God Who gives us rain today,
   And it comes down wonderf’lly!

清溪 河流 及小川 大湖
並瀑布 深海 汪洋
玩水氹 游池塘 讓我飲啖茶
食飯洗手 瞓覺沖淨涼
Streams and rivers and brooks and lakes,
There are oceans and waterfalls and seas.
We can swim, take a bath, jump in puddles too!
Wash our hands and drink a cuppa tea!

晚景

悔把心門閉
欲從死路歸
流金入海沒
歲月盡餘暉

凡事都有定期

習慣謊言作舊史
強將鐵幕喻青天
山窮水盡不歸路
國破黨亡於眼前
