  这首诗是美国著名女诗人 艾米莉·狄金森(Emily Dickinson)的一首描写死亡的诗歌。这首诗采用了狄金森喜爱的四音步和三音步交替的四行诗节形式,运用不完全韵来营造轻松、舒缓以及后来悲痛、释然的心境,读起来朗朗上口。诗中作者摈弃了以往人们对死亡恐怖、战栗的印象,以一种委婉的手法将死亡提升到一个可爱甚至可敬的形象,向众人展示了诗人对死亡的迥异看法。


  因为我不能停步等候死神

  Because I could not stop for death


  Because I could not stop for death

  He was parking pick me

  The carriage was just the two of us

  And "eternal life" with seat

  因为我不能停步等候死神

  他殷勤停车接我

  车厢里只有我们俩

  还有“永生”同座

  We slowly, he knew

  that without the need for rapid

  I also put aside work

  And leisure, to return

  His manners

  我们缓缓而行,他知道无需急促

  我也抛开劳作

  和闲暇,以回报

  他的礼貌

  We passed the school,

  coincides with the recess

  The children are noisy,

  on the playground

  We passed the fields

  of gazing grain

  We passed the setting sun

  我们经过学校,恰逢课间休息

  孩子们正喧闹,在操场上

  我们经过注目凝视的稻谷的田地

  我们经过沉落的太阳

  Maybe you should say,

  he passed us by

  Dew and cold

  makes me quiver

  Because my clothes, just sheer

  And my cape, only tulle

  也许该说,是他经过我们而去

  露水使我颤抖而且发凉

  因为我的衣裳,只是薄纱

  我的披肩,只是绢网

  We stopped at a house, the house

  As a swelling of the ground

  The roof, barely visible

  Eaves, below the surface

  of the ground

  我们停在一幢屋前,这屋子

  仿佛是隆起的地面

  屋顶,勉强可见

  屋檐,低于地面

  Since then, several centuries

  Seems to short the time of day

  That day, I first guess

  The horse, towards the eternal

  从那时算起,已有几个世纪

  却似乎短过那一天的光阴

  那一天,我初次猜出

  马头,朝向永恒
