一见钟情

(Wislawa Szymborska)
他们彼此深信
是瞬间迸发的热情让他们相遇
这样的确定是美丽的
但变幻无常更为美丽
他们素未谋面
所以他们确定彼此并无任何瓜葛
但是自街道、楼梯、大堂
传来的话语……
他们也许擦肩而过100万次了吧
我想问他们是否记得
在旋转门面对面那一刹
或是在人群中喃喃道出的对不起
或是在电话的另一端道出的打错了
但是我早知道答案
是的
他们并不记得
他们会很讶异
原来缘分已经戏弄他们多年
时机尚未成熟
变成他们的命运
缘分
将他们推进
距离
阻挡他们的去路
忍住笑声
然后闪到一旁
Love at First Sight
Both are convinced
that a sudden surge of emotion bound them together.
Beautiful is such a certainty,
but uncertainty is more beautiful.
Because they didn’t know each other earlier, they suppose that
nothing was happening between them.
What of the streets, stairways and corridors
where they could have passed each other long ago?
I’d like to ask them
whether they remember– perhaps in a revolving door
ever being face to face?
an "excuse me" in a crowd
or a voice "wrong number" in the receiver.
But I know their answer:
no, they don’t remember.
They’d be greatly astonished
to learn that for a long time
chance had been playing with them.
Not yet wholly ready
to transform into fate for them
it approached them, then backed off,
stood in their way
and, suppressing a giggle,
jumped to the side.
