Then, quite suddenly, one morning, the change came. The wind went to the south, came off the sea warm and soothing. In the afternoon there were little gleams of sunshine, and the doves began, without interval, slowly and awkwardly to coo. The doves were cooing, though with a laboured sound, as if they were still winter-stunned. Nevertheless, all the afternoon they continued their noise, in the mild air, before the frost had thawed off the road. At evening the wind blew gently, still gathering a bruising quality of frost from the hard earth. Then, in the yellow-gleamy sunset, wild birds began to whistle faintly in the blackthorn thickets of the stream-bottom.

It was startling and almost frightening, after the heavy silence of frost. How could they sing at once, when the ground was thickly strewn with the torn carcasses of birds? Yet out of the evening came the uncertain, silvery sounds that made one’s soul start alert, almost with fear. How could the little silver bugles sound the rally so swiftly, in the soft air, when the earth was yet bound? Yet the birds continued their whistling, rather dimly and brokenly, but throwing the threads of silver, germinating noise into the air.

Where does it come from, the song? After so long a cruelty, how can they make it up so quickly? But it bubbles through them, they are like little well-heads, little fountain-heads whence the spring trickles and bubble forth. It is not of their own doing. In their throats the new life distils itself into sound. It is the rising of the silvery sap of a new spring, gurgling itself forth.

突然间,一个清晨,变化出现了。风刮到了南方,海上飘来了温暖和慰藉。午后,太阳露出了几星光亮,鸽子开始不间断地缓慢而笨拙地发出咕咕的叫声。这声音显得有些吃力,仿佛还没有从严冬的打击下缓过气来。黄昏时,从河床的蔷薇棘丛中,开始传出野鸟微弱的啼鸣。

当大地还散落着厚厚的一层鸟的尸体的时候,它们怎么会突然歌唱起来?从夜色中浮起的隐约的清越的声音,使人惊讶。当大地仍在束缚中时,那小小的清越之声已经在柔弱的空气中呼唤春天了。它们的啼鸣,虽然含糊,若断若续,却把明快而萌发的声音抛向苍穹。

它从哪儿来呀?那歌声?在这么长的严酷后,鸟儿们怎么会这么快就复生?它活泼,像泉水,从那里,春天慢慢滴落又喷涌而出。新生活在鸟儿们喉中凝成悦耳的声音。它开辟了银色的通道,为着新鲜的春日,一路潺潺而行。

This is all today’s content. Thank you for listening.

今天的朗读就到这里,感谢大家的收听,大家下期再见。
