Literature1-再别康桥(徐志摩)Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again --- by Xu Zhimo


(Doris:I do like the poet  XuZhimo(徐志摩)and his poem "Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again". 

Actually all his work is great.And in my eye,he's kind of like Keats in Britain whose poems are all very romantic. 

Hope you enjoy it~ This poem expresses Xu's love for the Cambridge 'cause he had a quite good time there but he'd to leave there~ )

Very quietly I take my leave 
As quietly as I came here; 

Quietly I wave good-bye 
To the rosy clouds in the western sky. 

The golden willows by the riverside 
Are young brides in the setting sun; 

Their reflections on the shimmering waves 
Always linger in the depth of my heart. 

The floating heart growing in the sludge 
Sways leisurely under the water; 

In the gentle waves of Cambridge 
I would be a water plant! 

That pool under the shade of elm trees 
Holds not water but the rainbow from the sky; 

Shattered to pieces among the duckweeds 

Is the sediment of a rainbow-like dream? 

To seek a dream? 
Just to pole a boat upstream 
To where the green grass is more verdant; 

Or to have the boat fully loaded with starlight 
And sing aloud in the splendour of starlight. 

But I cannot sing aloud 
Quietness is my farewell music; 

Even summer insects heep silence for me 
Silent is Cambridge tonight! 

Very quietly I take my leave 
As quietly as I came here; 

Gently I flick my sleeves 
Not even a wisp of cloud will I bring away
