桉树果的歌

(澳大利亚 Philippa Rayment著,曾铮翻译)



   
   几年以前,在一个遥远的地方
   我在一个夏日的艳阳天里穿越丛林
   
   丛林中传来一个嘹亮悦耳的声音
   我找啊找啊,终于发现了
   藏在一棵老桉树的花丛中的
   那些美丽的小小的桉树果儿们
   
   
   他们甜美地唱着,他们的心儿纯洁又清澈
   丛林屏住了呼吸,静静地听着这歌儿
   天空被水晶般的光泽照亮
   翡翠、宝石和蝴蝶身上露珠般晶莹的钻石
   化为一道彩虹飞跨在空中
   
   丛林的树木也加入了歌唱
   他们学会了这首珍贵的歌,快乐无比
   
   合唱:
   来来来打开你的心儿同我一起歌唱
   特拉拉拉拉,特拉拉拉利
   永远别离开真善忍
   人人都会看到你心中的喜悦
   
   二
   
   桉树果们快乐地唱着
   一只邪恶的沼泽怪兽爬了过来
   它来自水坑,浑身又粘又滑又发青
   它是一个恶梦般的最可怕的怪兽
   
   “停下来!不许唱!”他嘶哑地叫喊。
   “你们不许当好人,我们只喜欢坏蛋。”
   它的朋友是一群蛤蟆样的奇形怪物
   头上长着尖刺,耳朵上挂着圆环
   
   
   它给了这些怪物好多好多的钱
   让他们摧毁森林,砍倒每一棵树
   森林变得荒芜又黑暗
   什么都不再生长,也不再有火花和光亮
   你再也听不到树儿的歌唱
   他们的心里充满了恐惧和悲伤
   
   三
   
   愤怒的云彩在天空中翻滚咆哮
   “那里在发生什么?”他们发出雷鸣般的轰响
   
   “唱歌的树儿快快生长,请不要惊慌
   一棵树毁掉,十棵树将成长。”
   云彩洒下奇特的雨水
   神奇的雨水找到了深藏在地下的桉树果儿
   桉树果儿长成树苗,朝着真善忍的方向迅速地成长
   森林里再一次充满了光亮
   
   沼泽怪兽很快就灭绝了――它死了
   没有一个人为它哭泣
   
   我要告诉你沼泽怪兽将永远不再出现
   因为当罪行不再存在
   邪恶当然不能胜利
   如果善良的人们意志坚定
   邪恶就将被除去
   
   而它那些狐朋狗友也从此不再做恶
   他们崩溃了,消失得无影无踪
   让我告诉你这些都是真实的故事
   因为我们就是那“桉树果儿”
   在这儿为你唱这首歌儿
   
   “法轮大法好,法轮大法好
   法轮大法是正法,佛光普照。”

   The Gumnut Song
   
   Verse 1
   
   
   A few years ago in a land far away,
   As I walked through the bush on a hot summer’s day,
   There rose from some trees a glorious sound.
   I looked and I looked and at last I found,
   Hidden in the blossoms of an old gum tree,
   Tiny gumnut babies, so beautiful to see.
   
   And singing sweetly with hearts pure and clear.
   The bush went quite still to watch and to hear.
   Scattered crystals of light diffused the air,
   And emeralds and rubies and other stones rare,
   And diamonds like dewdrops on a butterfly
   Turned into a rainbow spanning the sky.
   
   Then the trees began to sing along,
   So happy to learn this precious song.
   
   Chorus:
   Come life up your heart, come sing with me
   Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la-lee,
   Never falter from the truth, kind and tolerant be
   And happiness will fill your heart for everyone to see.
   
   Verse 2
   As the gumnuts were happily singing their song,
   A bad bunyip man came creeping along,
   From out of the waterhole all slimy and green,
   A most horrible creature, ‘twas like a bad dream.
   
   “Stop the singing! Not allowed!” he said with a crock,
   “You must not be good, we like evil folk”
   His friends were grotesque looking toad-like things,
   With spikes in their heads and ears full of rings.
   
   He paid all these creature a very large fee,
   To destroy all the bush, cut down every tree.
   The bushland became very barren and dark,
   Nothing grew, no light-not a spark.
   Not even one singing tree then could you hear,
   Their hearts were so lost in pain and in fear.
   
   Verse 3
   Angry clouds up above they swirled and they howled 
   “what’s going on there?” they grumbled and growled.
   
   “New singing tree grow, no need to fear
   One tree is destroyed ten others appear.”
   So the clouds made special rain and the water found 
   Some gumnuts that were hidden under the ground.
   And the trees quickly grew to Zhen Shan Ren
   And the bush was transformed to light again.
   
   And the bunyip soon became extinct-he died.
   I’d have to say that no one cried.
   
   I want to make this very clear
   The bunyip will never again appear.
   For when there is no sin
   The evil really cannot win.
   If goodness has determination
   The evil is in elimination.
   
   And his wicked friends no more made a fuss,
   They disintergrated-they are with us no more.
   I tell you all this story’s true, 
   For we are “The gumnuts” singing here for you.
   
   Falun Dafa Hao, Falun Dafa Hao
   Falun Dafa shi zhen fa go guang pu zhao.
