甜蜜而忧伤的九月

从上海到西雅图,从新闻采访到中文教育,唯一不变的是对文学的热爱。爱读中英文好书,爱听古典音乐,爱看惊心动魄的影视剧,爱美食,爱烹饪,这一切都融入笔端,和同人切磋。

周一,秋分。秋风萧瑟,秋叶透红。九月就要离开,而每次夏末初秋的九月,都是那样的甜蜜而又忧伤。

西雅图的九月,经常始于阳光灿烂,终于秋雨绵绵,中间夹杂着晴好和阴雨的天气,像一个跟男朋友赌气的少女,一会儿一个心情。

像我先生这样性格比较古板的理工男,在每年风中传来一丝丝凉意的时候也会有一些伤感。要知道,这儿的夏季特别温柔,几乎没有狂暴的烈日,今年连尘霾也鲜有光顾,跟这样美丽的季节告别,总是很依依不舍。

但是秋天,不期而至的秋天在忧伤中也有丝丝的甜蜜。一个夏天浇水不够的草坪透出了点点的绿意,积攒了一个夏天阳光的大丽菊努力绽放,一个有盆口那么大!偶尔在云层后面探头的阳光,更加让人觉得弥足珍贵。

我们就像松鼠攒冬粮一样,把最美好的夏天和秋天的记忆深深铭记,好度过天黑早,夜漫长的冬天。

这个甜蜜而忧伤的九月,特别适合听优美的音乐。我最爱的是这首“Try to Remember”。Josh Groban在他的新专辑“The Fantasticks”里就收有这首歌。我曾经在现场听过他的献唱,美声和通俗唱法结合完美,感情也丰富,在忧伤中有荡气回肠之感。

不过我还是有先入为主之见,觉得第一次听到的娜娜莫斯科莉(Nana Mouskouri)的演绎更能拨动我的心弦。她没有华丽复杂的演绎,就是用甜美纯净的声音和充沛的感情吟唱着:试着记住吧,这样的九月。

歌词在下面。读者们见仁见智吧!

Try to Remember (Harry Belafonte)

Try to remember the kind of September

When life was slow and oh

so mellow.

Try to remember the kind of September

When grass was green and grain was yellow.

Try to remember the kind of September

When you were a tender and callow fellow.

Try to remember and if you remember

then follow

follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender

When no one wept except the willow.

Try to remember when life was so tender

When dreams were kept beside your pillow.

Try to remember when life was so tender

When love was an ember about to billow.

Try to remember and if you remember

then follow

follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember

Although you know the snow will follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember

Without a hurt the heart will hollow.

Deep in December

it's nice to remember

The fire of September that made you mellow.

Deep in December our hearts should remember and follow

follow
