漫 话 芬 兰

                                •唐 夫•

芬兰之美,真有天造地设,鬼斧神工之妙。字面的意思,应是芬芳秀兰吧。

从飞机向下展望,徐徐飘移的波罗地海,湛蓝沉墨,从星罗棋布的岛屿,慢慢延伸至英姿迷人的芬兰海湾:兰天青幽幽、碧空似洗;白云银璨璨、翩翩起舞。绿绒绒的森林覆盖大地,十八万多个美如明镜的湖泊,千姿百态。林间清风翳翳,水面波光粼粼,函映群芳,环绕锦绣,不是仙境,胜是仙境。青波漫漫涟漪,候鸟轻轻翱翔,田野逶迤推浪,农家鳞次远近,广厦,小舍,红漆,黄木,白窗,花卉,纷纷涌簇,万般点缀。在广袤的乡间,豁然一幅欧洲名画,迎面兀显。这情景:天上人间,人间天上。据说,地老天荒的时候,芬兰在冰川下的海底,被神奇的造物主辛勤揉搓,千呼万唤,才露出海面。是他在平整的大地推冰琢玉,挥日洒月。以慈肠柔心,把冰山溶化,将海洋消退,形成迷人秀丽的千湖翠玉回环,万倾碧波争艳。其数量之庞多,湖水之洁净,堪称世界一绝。水质如琼浆玉液,沁人肺腑,透明清澈,直接饮用,味道淳美清凉纯净。

Talking About Finland

Tang Fu

       
           What makes the beauty of Finland wonderful is her incredible sights and breathtaking sceneries. The literal meaning of Finland should be sweet fragrance. Looking down from the aircraft, you can see that the slowly drifting of the Baltic Sea which is dark blue, extending to the fascinating Finland Gulf: the light blue skies seem as if they have just been washed by rain. The pure white clouds are bright, dancing in the sky. The green forests look like wool covering the earth, and in between those forests, more than one hundred and eighty thousands lakes are lying there in different elegant poses. Breezes blow through forests softly. The water is sparkling while reflecting all kind of flowers, beautifully embraced by mountains. It is not a fairyland, but better than a wonderland. Waves slowly become ripples, and the migratory birds gently fly high in the sky while the fields with crops sway, as if waves moving in the sea. Farmhouses  are near one another or some scattered here and there. The whole scenery is embellished with tall buildings, cottages, red paints, yellow woods, white windows, and clustered flowers. The wide countryside suddenly looks like an European painting which is displayed right in front of you. Such a scene: is it the human world in Heaven, or Heaven in the human world? It is said that, a long long time ago, Finland was underneath the glacier, at the bottom of  the sea, being kneaded by the amazing Creator assiduously,  and then, as if being called thousands of times, it was pushed to the surface of the sea. It is the Creator who spent a lot of time to carve, polish and refine it, and melted the iceberg, made the ocean recede and thousands of beautiful, charming lakes into shapes of jade rings, in which, huge waves boom overwhelmingly, is if competing in splendor. Finland is famous for the numerous amazing lakes and their pure water. It  can be called one of the miracles of the world.  Having high quality, water in Finland is so pure and clear and it sends off fragrance to moisturize its drinkers like nectar. It can be drunk directly without being distilled, and it tastes so good, cool and pure.

             ·唐 夫·

芬兰之美,真有天造地设,鬼斧神工之妙。字面的意思,应是芬芳秀兰吧。

从飞机向下展望,徐徐飘移的波罗地海,湛蓝沉墨,从星罗棋布的岛屿,慢慢延伸至英姿迷人的芬兰海湾:兰天青幽幽、碧空似洗;白云银璨璨、翩翩起舞。绿绒绒的森林覆盖大地,十八万多个美如明镜的湖泊,千姿百态。林间清风翳翳,水面波光粼粼,函映群芳,环绕锦绣,不是仙境,胜是仙境。青波漫漫涟漪,候鸟轻轻翱翔,田野逶迤推浪,农家鳞次远近,广厦,小舍,红漆,黄木,白窗,花卉,纷纷涌簇,万般点缀。在广袤的乡间,豁然一幅欧洲名画,迎面兀显。这情景:天上人间,人间天上。

据说,地老天荒的时候,芬兰在冰川下的海底,被神奇的造物主辛勤揉搓,千呼万唤,才露出海面。是他在平整的大地推冰琢玉,挥日洒月。以慈肠柔心,把冰山溶化,将海洋消退,形成迷人秀丽的千湖翠玉回环,万倾碧波争艳。其数量之庞多,湖水之洁净,堪称世界一绝。水质如琼浆玉液,沁人肺腑,透明清澈,直接饮用,味道淳美清凉纯净。一次,我的盲肠手术后护士就用水管缓流冲洗伤口,让我的脸色一阵苍白,她依然红颜笑吟。在这日已缺水的世界,平头百姓的用水竟如此奢华,难怪芬兰人的宴席佳肴,都有这杯透明的君子相交作陪,如此爽口润心荡涤阴阳之后,待人自然善良坦诚。

据历史考证,九千年前,芬兰人就在此奏起了生活的旋律,逐猎和捕鱼而丰衣足食,这是个没有过奴隶制度,没有过占领与掠夺的民族。友善,平等,和睦象空气般的自然必需。她在七个世纪前被瑞典的基督传道士影响后,自然的归化到瑞典版图。在南部居住的多数是中欧移民,德国人,法国人,俄国人,匈亚利人。他们的本土语言在十六世纪才形成书面文字,属于匈亚利语系范围,可见最初匈亚利人比例稍多。

芬兰气候微冷,让病虫都死去,留得大地清爽洁丽。芬兰的桑拿(Sauna)浴很热,其蒸汽汹涌喷薄,揉腻肌肤,痛快淋漓。这里是流行世界的桑拿浴的发源地,古时用木材烧石块,现在多用电炉上铺石块,洒水喷气,同时在炉上烧拷香肠,饮酒为趣.房屋稍微小巧玲珑,较封闭就行。芬兰人度假,离不了湖水和桑拿浴。乡间湖浜,座座别墅旁边,总有青烟徐徐的小屋,一条宽阔的木跳板桥,从桑拿室伸向湖心,蒸浴之后跳进碧波,就象铁錾烧红了下水。芬兰朋友相见,三言两语便拿起浴巾,遥手一指“走,去桑拿!”。那“泼嗤,泼嗤”的水雾被烈火生腾,香肠烤上味,啤酒引下流,光溜溜畅谈世界,热乎乎展开胸怀。真好朋友,男女老少超脱神仙。即是结冰的严冬,人们从火红的桑温浴里跑出来,在松软的雪白上翻滚几圈,便往湖上敲开的冰窟挑下去,再起来就是浑身钢筋铁骨。曾在滚滚硝烟的战地,芬兰士兵任随飞弹流枪,依然在桑拿浴里松驰。

那是39年冬天,百年罕见的酷烈寒冷袭降临芬兰,斯大林说十日内要把苏联军队开进赫尔辛基检阅。芬兰人把手走出桑拿室,就操起老枪。他们不信螳臂不能挡车,以少对多,以弱对强,硝烟滚滚一百零五天,苏军伤亡自报为22万(实际是为百万,请参看赫鲁晓夫回忆录),芬军伤亡八万左右。斯大林只好把自己的前线司令官脑袋敲掉,芬兰不好意思了,就给他一座城池,免得继续宰杀伙计。一年后希特勒侵俄,芬兰随便收回土地。后来德国虚了,芬兰再显宽宏大量。即使与德国联盟,犹太人依然受到芬兰人民保护。相比之下的法国,瑞士到今天还很不好意思提起往事。要是我们也有芬兰民族的软件,那丢失的5百多万平公里的土地,慰安妇及南京博物馆等系列词汇怎能问世。遗憾清末时,被俄国抓去的中国战俘在赫尔辛基修战壕时都消亡了。不然,留得几个回老家传经送宝,钓鱼岛恐怕是钓虾岛,何忧将成为钓鲸岛呢?这么说,我得回去做桑温拿。

芬兰是十九世纪初被俄国从瑞典版图里割裂,1917年初列宁和德国交易,承认芬兰独立。后来派地下党去芬兰破坏安定团结,还是德国来帮忙维持了现状。现在俄国的黑手党多来芬兰倒爷。只有俄皇尼古拉大帝的铜像依然矗立在主教区的广场上,赫尔新基的一条中心街就以此命名。至今不少俄国政要来此缅怀辉煌的过去。

真怪,这里没有任何天灾人祸,地震,洪水,狂风,暴雨好象也善解人意,自觉靠边站去。基督似的平等自由,天使般的友善和睦,是芬兰人的特徵。这个国家没有矿藏,没有资源,仅有的林木,他们用来保护生态。他们购买俄国(前苏联)的原料来造纸,居世界四大纸国之列。芬兰的纸张人均使用量居世界第二位。那洁白精美的书籍,拿在手就粘住眼睛。公共场所都有纸巾免费供应,人人手脚干干净净,街头没有追逐扒手的游戏。

芬兰的电子通讯技术也高居世界前列,NOKIA(若基亚)公司横跨世界。意大利人是举国并用芬兰手机。美国人漫画欧洲连猫代狗都被手机串链,应算芬兰首当其冲。据统计,人均50%有手机电话。据美国的电台节目上对NOKIA的97年初报导,它的手机电话销量96年跃居世界第二大国,超过瑞典,仅次于山姆大叔(当我再次修改此稿时,它已经超过美国了)。芬兰的电子技术受日本青睐,皇军的不少产品技术,也是从芬兰购买后去“八格呀鲁的干活”。在芬兰大约30%以上的家庭有了电脑,其更新极快,质量好,价格高,销量大。芬兰的化工,机械,冶炼,造船等等产品技术也是世界前列。陈永贵最喜欢芬兰化肥,万吨粪船乐此不疲,年年依然。芬兰造的豪华巨轮,远销美国,加拿大,日本,澳洲等国。他们没有煤炭,没有铁矿,他们的钢材优质畅销。任何产品,只要是芬兰出产,就令人放心。他们的客户是德国,法国,英国等十几个世界老牌商界行家。对文化的传播,芬兰政府也不遗余力,教育免费,介绍各国文化书籍等及目可见。三国水浒,红楼梦,金瓶梅,唐诗宋词等书,图书馆里举手之劳。这里健身房,运动场,公共设施的林园,广场比比皆是。学芬兰语很有趣,需要巧舌如簧,芬兰语精细入微,语法如魔法,天花乱坠,令人不着边际。而且必须先学语法,后用词典。芬兰人人是语言天才,大多数人会四五门外语。一位操十门外语的朋友能用汉语与我交谈自如,俱说在其所会的语言里居中下程度。

这又是个高智商的民族,仅有500万人的小国啊,翻开英美今年版的二十世纪百科全书,第二,第三位就是芬兰人。以S字母开头的是世界享誉世界的第一流建筑学家萨理恁父子(Saarinen Eliel,Saarinen Eero)在赫尔辛基,巴黎和美国留下出类拔赘的建筑手笔。而今流行的<> 姥咪妈妈的童话故事,就是芬兰女作家妥菲.艳淞(TOVI.YANSSON)的名著。享誉全球的数学巨人Lars.V.Ahlsors出生在芬兰。驰名世界数学“解析函数值分布”理论的创立者,也是芬兰数学家若尔夫,涅瓦林那(ROLF.NEVANLINNA)的杰作。著名音乐家西伯柳斯生长在此,以他命名的音乐学院是欧洲名流聚会胜地。芬兰的姑娘很美,世界选美不乏几获佳冠。芬兰的田径运动员帕委.喏儿宓(PAAVO.NORMI)荣获九块在奥运会金牌,这纪录一直保持到96年,才被美国人追赶上来。芬兰的男子在世界大力士比赛,总是独占鳌头。

芬兰的首都定在南部海边赫尔辛基市,那是俄皇的旨意,(前都城突尔古在西南部海岸一个城市) 这里景色秀丽,风景宜人,气候温和。以她的柔美姿色,亭亭玉立,被人赞誉波罗的海的女儿。它没有高大耸立的楼层,但建筑典雅端庄,精巧别致。石雕的欧洲建筑风味处处可见。城市交通井然,布局合理。有地铁,有轨电车,公共汽车辆辆崭新。交通舒畅轻松,一般的交通工具里,空空如也。有一次我从中部城市乘火车回返赫尔辛基,整节车厢就我孤家寡人在观赏乾净舒适,漂亮悦目的空位。这里的租车几乎全是“奔驰”。这里海运港口,四通八达,辗转德国,或大西洋地中海欧洲诸国。这里市内公园密布,林木成荫,令人爽心悦目,流连忘返。人们缓缓漫步,市容悠悠井然。无论是大街,小巷,堂内,室外,见不到灰尘,更没有废物,连行人的道路,也摸不到一点污迹。无论是高速公路,或市区里,公路旁边都有一条平整的自行车道,与人行道并列划线分别。这样的道路舒适安全,可那投下的资金,也非天文数字得了。国计民生啊,应该考虑一劳永逸。

这个人口仅五十万的首都,吸引了数百万的游客年年观光。芬兰人和祥好客,没有排外情绪,社会秩序非常的良好。世界著名首脑会议多在赫尔新基召开(继布什后,克林顿又和叶尔辛在此握手)。这个年青的城市,建都不到两百年的历史。她曾被大火烧毁过,也曾被苏联飞机狂轰烂炸成废墟。但今天的赫尔辛基,凡是来观光的客人,无不为她的悠闲,静柔,安宁而迷住。在芬兰,我到过不少城市,都很美,很清洁,各具特色而又宁静。

这里市景繁华但不喧啸,建筑秀美而不拥塞。她是世界上少有的空气清爽的首都。

这里博物馆图书馆星罗棋布,赫尔辛基人口比不上中国的小县城,市立公共图书馆之多,近的隔街而已,里面有音乐室,儿童乐书室,电脑室,学习写作室,单间隔音会议讨论室,简直把学习与精神享受连在一块。书籍任人租借,不限量,图书馆还专为借书者指定的书购买。也可以帮你从市里任何一家图书馆调来书籍,免费服务。甚至医院的病床边,也有图书馆人员推车巡回送书。现在任何图书馆里,都是电脑管理,自己一查即可以调运,免费电话就在旁。这里家家书香,人人博识。它是世界扫盲最早的国家。一百年前就没有人不会读报了。赫尔辛基大学是欧洲名牌大学,声誉全球,在欧洲更为学人青睐。其余大学也是星罗棋布,遍及全国。

大慨只有基督精神,伊甸园的模式的解释芬兰,才有逻辑答案。

许多黑黄老外来芬兰报怨:唉,福利太高了,养懒人啊。不久,他们的亲友也钻了进来,一块向政府抱怨。生活在芬兰的孩子与妇女的享受可能是世界之最。母亲除了享有三年全薪的养育期外,另有奖励妈妈津贴费,孩子按人头领钱,生的越多,给的越多,功夫在肚皮。就连妈妈生育的时刻,做爸爸的也有一周的助产假。这里任何人只要带个不能步行的孩子,就乘车免票。孩子十八岁后(包括部份高中时期)有学习赞助费,租房补贴70%(租私房的89%)。可以贷款求学,将来慢慢还,不操急,还可以免除税款。孩子读书从小学到大学是免费,小学到中学九年为义务教育,全部经费包括午餐都是免费供应。高中是书籍不免费(部份也是国家发给),学费仍然免。大学是书籍自理,学费全免。 政府还为醉鬼提供免费喝酒,定量供应,醉鬼们不吃这一套,街头摇摇欲坠胜于忠字舞。不时可见街头摇曳的酒鬼,啤酒仰面倒下。警察扶去坐几天牢,麻烦政府花五千马克去支付。

芬兰从六十年代前的一个落后的农业国,到八十年代中期,就一跃而成为世界先进国家之一,国民经济雄居世界。论地理和战略位置,以及资源都没有丹麦,瑞典,挪威,冰岛优越,然而,却并列为北欧高福利国,还以钢城铁墙姿态,阻止了苏联欲望。据联合国95年的政府记录报导,世界一百八十多个国家里,芬兰与中国都在第四位上,廉腐之间,反比而已。

位于北极的芬兰,室内总是四季如春,永远恒定在摄氏20度。无论室外零下多少度,人的体温不受威胁。冬天,我经常冬天出门穿很少,汽车里已经被暖气按时烘热,坐公车更暖和,走在凉爽的大道,呼吸到凉嗖嗖的冷气,舒服!要真的觉得冷,路边的商店,进去看几眼又是热血沸腾。

我时常在路上,总会看到退休的老人,手里拿着塑料袋,到森林里,或清洁工没有去到的角落,有什么垃圾,就收集起来放去垃圾箱,不少的老太太,专门从商店里买来鸟食,喂养海鸥候鸟。他们不把灵雀和下酒菜想到一块儿,听着鸟语时也不流口水,湿脚背。

我曾驾车从城市到原野,从乡村到湖畔。从南部的海边,到北头的山峦。那光洁平整的公路,铺设在森林和莽原,交错在城乡,象地毯似的彩带,为汽车欢快歌唱。和谐的自然景物,令人眼目一新。五色翎尾的山鸡,松鼠,麇鹿,落雁,沉鱼,在道旁,在空中,在水里,翘首眺望,那亲昵的神态,和人类多么友爱。我真忍不住想靠近它们,合上一影,大慨是羞涩,或陌生,它们轻轻腼腆摇步,欲近又远。顽皮的麇鹿,嘻闹在路道,向汽车频频点头。林间的鼠兔常是一闪而至,要与车轮较量,太顽皮,又轮回一轻轻性命。这辽阔处女地,是野生动物栖息的乐园。这海洋,平川,湖泊,森林和原野,是神韵的谐调,令人顿觉仙风道骨依双肋旁生,丹顶鹤骨由额前突出。超然避世,幽幽脱俗,海天空阔,莽原逶迤,心领神会,妙处难说。生命于此好像有了真正的归宿。

天堂么,或是圣境! 而这里的确芬芳兰秀啊!

1997年 作于芬兰


18 评论


插队西天


唐夫


人说王道乐土,极乐世界,以前,我只有从书本上胡思乱想。

出生在唯物世界的芸芸众生里,我看到的是莽莽人海,苟且偷生,尔虞我诈,弱肉强食。胡诌的信仰像劣质广告,除了诈骗,就是愚昧,只晓得那鲜血染红的年代,制造恐怖便是骄傲。

而今在北欧,看到在耶稣的十字架徽章的国旗下,人民和祥安乐,杜绝了天灾人祸,以此耳闻目睹和设身处地的纵深思考,我不能不油然的猛然醒悟:上帝给予人类的典范,是不是从这片和谐的大地,去推测永恒的自然,再联想浩瀚的宇宙。

这里,有广袤土地,绿色原野,碧青天空,湛蓝海洋以及众多的万湖之国——芬兰,这是个让我们革面洗心的国度。

这里,人是那么的稀少,树木是那么茂密,连松鼠和野兔都笑嘻嘻的看着人,只想逗留,不愿离开。

这里处处是摇曳的鲜花与青草,处处呈现一派肥沃和丰腴的景象。

总觉得做华侨太累,想一想盘古,黄帝老儿都没有国籍之忧,我们还需考虑青山忠骨等台词么,要爱生态平衡的自然,要爱五彩斑斓的土地,与其结下不解之源,让子孙去崇拜费翔,让炎黄之后去热泪盈眶,欢声雷动。

曾经厌烦的农活,那梦喻中早已消失的知青生涯,又再次出现在异乡别国。不过,现在的感觉体会是除了见不到——被雷打和雨刷的语录碑林立在荒脊的——山丘以外,更无法想象那被强迫吃忆苦饭,唱样板戏等,来感恩戴德于遍布莫须有的罪名之魁,算是三生有幸。

人类什么时候学会了奔走四方,什么时候模糊了它乡和故乡,要解释这么深刻的道理,大慨只有太空的流云和密林的飞鸟才深谙其中三昧。

在离我们家约一两公里的地方,在树林环绕的空间,有一片被开垦的空阔的原野,以前,我们散步经过,不知那是私人的领地,或是政府的辖区。一块块被耕种为平整的,间隔的,垒成条条小沟的黑土,各具特色。四个小小的木桩按50平方或者上百平方的面积钉成长方型,有的拉线,有的用小石块砌成疆域。

后来听说这是城市人租赁的土地,是用来习作和操务农活的消闲菜地。

曾经也几次打听,都因为没有找到到地主的“门枋”而敲退堂鼓。

倒是女儿的教母有办法,这个年青的芬兰妈妈,不顾三个依次生降的幼孩缠绕,耐心查阅通讯资料,电话询问,写信联系,终于找到“刘文彩的收租院”,使我们得到一块土地。就这一点,足以使当代的义和团员稍逊风骚。曾经对“占领”,“侵略”,“鬼子”等词汇如数家珍,而今的地主在哪里,水牢有好深,我们的阶级觉悟哪里去了?这些被灌输得脑髓长茧的经文,该怎么回答?我不由得发声“白尔格勒”(芬兰语的国骂,相当于中国“他妈的,魔鬼,倒霉,混蛋”等可笑可怒之语)来面向朝东方一吐为快。

从寄来的票据上看,地租价格五十马克(相当于芬兰工人的一小时的一般工资水平)一年,想一想,随便乱丢种子而生长的菜蔬,远远何值那点钱,就心悦诚服面对剥削了。

从小就恨地主,该杀该枪毙,该成黑五类【注一】,子子孙孙永远不得翻身,在那人人可以拳打脚踢加语录说教而心安理得的光辉年代,说起地主,哪个好汉不是耿耿于怀,恨恨不休。那时候说:彻底的唯物主义者是无所畏惧的。换句话说,彻底的恐怖主义者,又畏惧什么呢?

现在才知道地主其实是最可爱的人,老老实实的为了土地,悟出做人的道理。

正如一位腆着啤酒肚儿的唱诺着“白尔格勒”的“同僚”笑哈哈的对我说:来了这里,就不用去健身房啦!我本想说阿弥陀佛,一出口却成了上帝保佑。这岂仅仅是一举两得减肥场所。

自从我们搬到这附近的城市居民住宅,就经常从这里经过,不时见到高大肥壮的“老内”,有的开车,有的骑车,有的闲庭信步,来到各自的土地上,挥舞各式各样的农具,把红红绿绿点缀出来。

这是一年之季的春末夏初,所有的良辰美景都集中在此,蓝天和白云从远远的碧绿树梢上苒苒来去,飘飘忽忽,微风拂面,青鸟如语,在这纯净而自然的大地上,悠闲顽皮的灵犬欢快跳跃在草丛,又不时一动不动地爬伏,盯着人们修理地球,倒像主人在把仆人观赏。

从这平静的原野,和祥的土地上,可以品尝到太阳的诗情和月色的意境。在这样纯净自然的地方,除了泥土的芳馨,那画图似的工笔画真会把人生引导入一个幽幽的灵界。

在这令人醉微微的土地上,尽管我们没有陶潜的南山胸襟,阮籍的铸铁技能,也开始通晓了田园风光的奥义。能在自己的泥土中,用自己的手,拔出自己栽种出来的,属于自己劳动形成的嫩绿鲜菜,那不知有多么“伟大的豪情”。

得到的这块地已经两年没有人整理,杂草丛生,土地板结,我们要狠狠的流汗,种子才愿意舒服的趟在被窝,愉快的冒出来。

旁边邻地干活的高鼻子白农姑说:撒种嘛,该你养活它呢,还是它养活你?说不清的。

好在水龙头就在地边,呼风不敢提劲,唤雨是随心所欲了。

从得到土地的第一天,好心的邻居听我们一说,便立即把铁楸铁耙等农具慷慨赋予,随即我们又买了铁叉,水管,水头等用具。吃过晚饭,妻还没有收拾完毕餐具,女儿就急迫的闹着要走,城市的长大的孩子,都十八岁了,还对土地是那么新鲜好奇,以为种庄稼和玩泥人似的。

我先把一些工具杂件装上汽车,女儿上车就嚷着开车,不一会,便来到自己的“荒地”,再片刻,妻摇曳着单瘦的身躯,也笑吟吟的匆匆赶来。

这是简单而又复杂的劳动,我们完全没有规划和整理的方略筹谋,翻土,平地,播种,洒水这些事人人都会,施肥么,在这里就不必了。复杂嘛,当然是门农艺学,够人终身研究,要数学院教授学者的,可能排出整师整团。

闲话少说,书归正传。

我用铁叉往地上一插,将外衣脱去,三十年前被迫赶下农村的情景恍然在目:破衣敞鞋的农民,呆痴神态的润土,镰刀,锄头,瘦牛,枯草,老树,昏鸦的镜头,那永远贫穷的贫农,谎言堆积的思想,那啼饥号寒的婴儿,那山坡上的语录碑,像魔鬼的厉齿在吞食这古老而衰败的土地。

我不敢想了,抖去一身的鸡皮疙瘩,望一眼天边的黑云,回到眼前,茂密的杂草在讥笑我的多愁善感,“呸”的一声,我狠狠的铲了下去,把地球摇圆。

  再一回头!

女儿的铁楸早已扬起来,顶上只有一片云天,随势下沉,双手斜伸,身子随之坠成弯弓,踏上一足,再直起来,抬起双脚往上一踏,身形摇摆,如地动山摇,“喳”的一声,一大块泥土黑黝黝的裂开嘴,再翻了个身,气味馨馨的散发开来,弥漫向那广袤草地,再渗入密集的树林。初见那红红的蚯蚓突然裸露出来,极不好意思的样子,急忙羞愧的往地缝里钻,好像初次登台的模特儿,才露出酮体又躲进幕布。又好比千姿百态的美人鱼,把泥土的波浪当成大海,一翻身就深藏不露了。不管那茂密的小草如何顽固的抓紧土壤,还是被折下躯杆,像秋风落叶下挣扎的共产世界,无论怎么嚓嚓嘶嚷,无奈的呼救,还是阻挡不了历史的洪流。铁楸如影随形的不停摇摆,草丛密集的土地露出新鲜的色泽。一幅良辰美景的农家乐土,就这么勾画出来。女儿那红红的脸上,已是热气腾腾。

  人要是回归自然,就这么听从自然,也许不是坏事,然而,谁又能满足自然的一切呢?

  我们屈伸双臂,汗如雨下,妻匍匐向下,用小锄平整泥土,她总是任劳任怨的埋头实干任何事情,大概有蚂蚁和蜜蜂的性格:信奉上帝,平静生活,努力干活就是奉献和满足。

  极目远去,蓝天被树尖顶着,这片草原似的土地,被树林环绕着,像块巨型的月饼,只开垦了半月,据说那一半是让动物活动的场地,有时候动物园的常住居民来此旅游观光吧?一位青壮的女士,浑身抖擞,白色戎装,精神焕发,驾驭骏马,在那里扬蹄奔跑。啼啼嗒嗒的节奏,为音乐家带来灵感。

  我周围的邻居,各自在土地上开列沙盘,修整,造型,小方块的说要种草莓,长条型的说是种马铃薯,平平的一片说种大葱。

  一位老头和老太也对我喜笑颜开的说,别看这么小的土地呀,我们一家子还吃不完呢。我问他们:一家子有多少?他们搬指头一数,五个,另外三个就是猫,狗,兔,别忘了兔子是三瓣嘴在吃啊!老太太说得自己都笑了。

  “你种过庄稼么?”老头儿问我了。

  “种过,不过那是在鬼混!”我回答道。

  “鬼混也是办法……?”他不解了。

  什么知青啦,工分啦,学大寨啦,一系列的词汇在我的喉头拥挤,无法解释出来。只好说:“你知道毛泽东么?为了全中国人减肥(这个伟大的东西曾经限制农民‘忙时吃干,平时吃清,闲时半干半清’,结果还是轻松愉快的把几千万农民活活弄出了人间,使当代中国人的脸色只要红润,就必然是当官的),强迫大家听陈永贵的,等飞机坦克来帮忙才行。就是想打仗,也说钻耗儿洞,不怕原子弹。”

他想不通又找不出道理来驳斥我,觉得滑稽,便哈哈笑了起来,做了个鬼脸,用手在胸前,一比一伸一抬,就像当年的红卫兵用语录本的模样。这已经成了世界滑稽典故,海外的华侨无不知晓,只是见惯不惊了,相当于现在的中国特色和人权不如肠权等笑料。

说说笑笑的挖掘中,翻起来的泥土已经奇形怪状垒瓦似的摆着,交错的草梗牢牢的舍不得离开土壤,新买的铁叉不经撬拗,叉丫斜弯,一看商标,是Made in China。回首故国,“Y的”东西家喻户晓,成为绝唱,想不到今天已经开始“解放三分之二”了。

夕阳金灿灿的下来,微风徐徐的横飘,飞穗从花瓣里飘出来,引起蜜蜂欢快争鸣。被我们汗滴过的土地已经成为黑腻腻的地毯似的摆在足下,其中有一片没有翻动的土上,那曾经栽种过的草莓行行,已经开出团团的盛开白花,耀眼夺目,我们舍不得割爱,憧憬着红妍艳的霉果酸甜诱人,香气缭绕。

  末了,农具就放在地边木箱里(这里不用上锁),揩一把脸,嘴角尤带咸味。这时的天空份外清爽,陌霭沉沉的西天,肥腴的沃土,在金光下追随着我们的车轮,那林间的小道留下弯曲车辙,像中国老农脸上偶尔笑出的皱纹。

一次,我的盲肠手术后护士就用水管缓流冲洗伤口,让我的脸色一阵苍白,她依然红颜笑吟。在这日已缺水的世界,平头百姓的用水竟如此奢华,难怪芬兰人的宴席佳肴,都有这杯透明的君子相交作陪,如此爽口润心荡涤阴阳之后,待人自然善良坦诚。
Once, after my appendix surgery, the nurse washed my wound directly with water from the sink, which really frightened me and caused my face to turn pale,  but the nurse kept smiling calmly as if everything was going normal. This world has less and less water day by day, but people in Finland use water in a luxurious way. No wonder this crystal clear good stuff has been a great company at banquets and parties in Finland.  It is so tasty, refreshing, and moisturizing , that after drinking  it even Yin and yang can be balanced accordingly.  Being nurtured by such good water, no wonder Finnish people are so kind and open-hearted.


据历史考证,九千年前,芬兰人就在此奏起了生活的旋律,逐猎和捕鱼而丰衣足食,这是个没有过奴隶制度,没有过占领与掠夺的民族。友善,平等,和睦象空气般的自然必需。她在七个世纪前被瑞典的基督传道士影响后,自然的归化到瑞典版图。在南部居住的多数是中欧移民,德国人,法国人,俄国人,匈亚利人。他们的本土语言在十六世纪才形成书面文字,属于匈亚利语系范围,可见最初匈亚利人比例稍多。
According to historical research, about 9,000 years ago, Finns started to play melodies of life here. This is  a tribe with no slave system, had not experienced  invading or plundering,  but still can be well-fed and well-clothed by hunting and fishing.  With friendly character and the sense of equality they can get along with each other well in a harmonious atmosphere as if these are as natural as air.  About seven centuries ago, after being influenced by Sweden's preachers, Finland naturally was divided into the territory of Sweden, as a part of that country. In the south of Finland,  most  residents there are from  middle Europe, Germany, France, Russia and Hungary. Finnish language started to become a written language in the sixteenth century,  which belongs to the Hungarian family of languages, and from it we can know that the Hungarian population  ratio was slightly higher than that of other nations in the beginning.

芬兰气候微冷,让病虫都死去,留得大地清爽洁丽。芬兰的桑拿(Sauna)浴很热,其蒸汽汹涌喷薄,揉腻肌肤,痛快淋漓。这里是流行世界的桑拿浴的发源地,古时用木材烧石块,现在多用电炉上铺石块,洒水喷气,同时在炉上烧拷香肠,饮酒为趣。Climate in Finland is a bit chilly, so that pests are cold to dead, leaving a clean and beautiful land. The Finnish sauna bath is so hot. Gentle steam surges and rubs your skin softly, making you feel extremely comfortable. Here is the birth place of  saunas which are so popular all over the world. In the ancient times, people burned stones with wood, but today, electronic stoves are used the most----they put stones on the top of the stove and then sprinkle water over the heated stones, at the same time, placing barbeque sausages on the top of heated stones,  Drinking for fun.  房屋稍微小巧玲珑,较封闭就行。芬兰人度假,离不了湖水和桑拿浴。乡间湖浜,座座别墅旁边,总有青烟徐徐的小屋,一条宽阔的木跳板桥,从桑拿室伸向湖心,蒸浴之后跳进碧波,就象铁錾烧红了下水。芬兰朋友相见,三言两语便拿起浴巾,遥手一指“走,去桑拿!”。Although houses are slightly  smaller,  they are tight enough to resist cold weather. Finnish people, while taking vacation, they go to lakes and saunas which are absolutely friendly resorts to enjoy.  Beside every single cottage is a lakeshore in the countryside,  there are always small units with smoke slowly rising from inside, a wide wooden board bridge lies there, extending from the sauna  rooms to the  center of the lake. After a steam bath, you jump into the waves, it feels like a red hot iron chisel suddenly being dropped to cold water.  While hanging out with friends, just after a few words Finnish people will take up their towels, swing their arms, point to the direction of sauna resorts, and say, "Let's go to sauna!"

那“泼嗤,泼嗤”的水雾被烈火生腾,香肠烤上味,啤酒引下流,光溜溜畅谈世界,热乎乎展开胸怀。真好朋友,男女老少超脱神仙。即是结冰的严冬,人们从火红的桑温浴里跑出来,在松软的雪白上翻滚几圈,便往湖上敲开的冰窟挑下去,再起来就是浑身钢筋铁骨。曾在滚滚硝烟的战地,芬兰士兵任随飞弹流枪,依然在桑拿浴里松驰。
The misty water starts to "Puff, puff", cough and pop by the raging fire. The aroma of grilled sausages along with beer really make you enjoy  the getting together with your friends, talking  about everything leisurely and openheartedly while being naked and feeling the smooth effects of the sauna. All are good friends, everybody, males, females and children, everyone is as free as the fairies.   Even in the icy winter, people still have the passion to rush out of the red hot sauna rooms and roll a few laps on the soft snow before they knock holes on the surface of the ice and jump into water under it. When they come up from the icy water again their entire body is already as  strong as iron.  The sauna is so enjoyable. Once in the battlefields with deadly billowing smoke, Finnish soldiers still could  ignore the flying bullets and shooting guns, as if nothing happened, relaxed in the sauna bath without being afraid.

那是39年冬天,百年罕见的酷烈寒冷袭降临芬兰,斯大林说十日内要把苏联军队开进赫尔辛基检阅。芬兰人把手走出桑拿室,就操起老枪。他们不信螳臂不能挡车,以少对多,以弱对强,硝烟滚滚一百零五天,苏军伤亡自报为22万(实际是为百万,请参看赫鲁晓夫回忆录),芬军伤亡八万左右。斯大林只好把自己的前线司令官脑袋敲掉,芬兰不好意思了,就给他一座城池,免得继续宰杀伙计。
It was the winter of 1939,  an once-in-a-century severe coldness hit across the territory of Finland. Stalin said that Russia would send troops to Helsinki in the next ten days to do the inspection. Finns got out of their sauna rooms and picked up guns getting themselves ready to fight against the enemy. They believed that they could kick against the pricks. They fought against Russia, less against more, weak against strong, with thick smoke and flying dirt for one hundred and five days. Soviet casualties were  reported to be 220,000 (actually about one million, please refer to Khrushchev's memoirs), Finnish army casualties were about 80,000.  Stalin had no choice but to knock off his frontline commander's head. Finland felt sorry for that so it let Russians take over one city of the country so to avoid the risk of killing more of their enemies.
一年后希特勒侵俄,芬兰随便收回土地。后来德国虚了,芬兰再显宽宏大量。即使与德国联盟,犹太人依然受到芬兰人民保护。相比之下的法国,瑞士到今天还很不好意思提起往事。要是我们也有芬兰民族的软件,那丢失的5百多万平公里的土地,慰安妇及南京博物馆等系列词汇怎能问世。遗憾清末时,被俄国抓去的中国战俘在赫尔辛基修战壕时都消亡了。不然,留得几个回老家传经送宝,钓鱼岛恐怕是钓虾岛,何忧将成为钓鲸岛呢?这么说,我得回去做桑温拿。
One year later, Hitler invaded Russia, so Finland took the opportunity to recover its lost lands. Then as Germany's strengths weakened, Finland once again showed the world its generosity.  Even though federating with Germany, Jews were still under the protection of Finnishpeople. In contrast, France, Switzerland still feel embarrassed to bring this up today. If we Chinesealso had the good character as the Finnish people, then we wouldn't have lost more than five million square kilometers of land, and the terms comfort women and Nanjing Museum wouldn't have arrived in the world.  Unfortunately, at the end of Qing Dynasty, Chinese prisoners who were captured by the Russians to dig war trenches in Helsinki were all gone by then. Otherwise, if a few of them had survived and returned home to teach their experience about fighting a war,  then the Diaoyu Islands were afraid to become a Diaoxia Island,  then why should we worry about that it would  become a Diaojing Island?  Therefore, now I guess that I should go home to do the sauna business.

芬兰是十九世纪初被俄国从瑞典版图里割裂,1917年初列宁和德国交易,承认芬兰独立。后来派地下党去芬兰破坏安定团结,还是德国来帮忙维持了现状。现在俄国的黑手党多来芬兰倒爷。只有俄皇尼古拉大帝的铜像依然矗立在主教区的广场上,赫尔新基的一条中心街就以此命名。至今不少俄国政要来此缅怀辉煌的过去。
Finland was  separated from Swedish territory by Russia in the beginning of  the 19th century.  Lenin and Germany had a deal and he recognized Finland's independence. Afterwards,  he sent underground party members to Finland to destroy its stability and unity. It was Germany who helped maintain the status quo of this country. Today, most of the Russian mafia members are active in  business activities in Finland, and only the statue of the Russian Emperor, Nicholas,  still stands steadily in the Bishops square, and the name of a main street in Helsinki also refers to it. Up to now, many Russian politicians keep coming  here to cherish the memories of their glorious past.


真怪,这里没有任何天灾人祸,地震,洪水,狂风,暴雨好象也善解人意,自觉靠边站去。基督似的平等自由,天使般的友善和睦,是芬兰人的特徵。
Strangely enough,  in Finland, not any natural or man-made disasters have ever happened, such as earthquakes, floods, high winds and heavy rain, all seem to be considerate enough to this country that they consciously step aside. A Christ-like perspective on  freedom and equality, angel-like friendly and harmony are the natures of Finns.

这个国家没有矿藏,没有资源,仅有的林木,他们用来保护生态。他们购买俄国(前苏联)的原料来造纸,居世界四大纸国之列。芬兰的纸张人均使用量居世界第二位。那洁白精美的书籍,拿在手就粘住眼睛。公共场所都有纸巾免费供应,人人手脚干干净净,街头没有追逐扒手的游戏。This country has no mineral or other resources but only trees, which are used for the purpose of ecology and environmental protection.  They purchase raw materials from Russia(the former Soviet) to make paper, and this makes Finland become in the top four paper making countries in the world.  The average use of paper in Finland is ranked in the second position in the world.  Books printed in spotlessly white  and exquisite papers make you like it so much that you don't wish to get it off your hands. Tissues in public are available and they are free of charge. Everybody is so clean that you don't see any pickpockets being chased by police on the street.  

芬兰的电子通讯技术也高居世界前列,NOKIA(若基亚)公司横跨世界。意大利人是举国并用芬兰手机。美国人漫画欧洲连猫代狗都被手机串链,应算芬兰首当其冲。据统计,人均50%有手机电话。据美国的电台节目上对NOKIA的97年初报导,它的手机电话销量96年跃居世界第二大国,超过瑞典,仅次于山姆大叔(当我再次修改此稿时,它已经超过美国了)。
Finland's electronic communication technology is also the highest in the world. Nokia is an well-known international company. Everyone in Italy uses mobile phones made in Finland. American editorial cartoons  about Europe show that even cats and dogs are on phone strap leashes, which must be related to Finland.  According to statistics, half the population in Finland has a mobile phone. Based on the early 1997 report which was released by the American radio programs,  the Nokia mobile phone sales in 1996 ranked on the world's second position, more than Sweden,  only next to Uncle Sam (By the time I modified this draft, it had already surpassed the United States).

评论:

1) It's nice. Clear read. But having Finnish relatives - and visited - it is just an odd read. Are you aiming for irony??  (很好,流畅。但我有芬兰的亲戚--也去过那里--读着也觉可笑。你不是旨在讽刺吧?

Cause

I mean no pests - yeah, we do. Mosquitoes [horseflies, black flies], ticks, fleas, snakes, spiders and other.
No disasters - flooding is by far the most common. Almost every spring.  (我意思是,没有害虫--有的哟。蚊子(虻,黑蝇)。。。

Ps. The bit about the water made me smile. Tap water was once called "likainen vesi" - dirty water - for a reason. The same pollution - pulp mills / sheep farm - that earned the tap water its lovely dub goes unchecked in a number of the natural bodies of water.

I won't comment further for fear of offending but this isn't quite the Finland I know. It'd be fantastic for a travel brochure though.
我不再多说啦,怕多有得罪了,但这不完全是我认识的芬兰。这篇放进旅游小册子应该很棒。


2)
“Finland was underneath the glacier, at the bottom of the sea, being kneaded by the amazing Creator assiduously, and then, as if being called thousands of times, it was pushed to the surface of the sea. ”

poetic  很有诗意

更新跟帖:

Thanks to Escorial, Dove and Kevin! Yes, it is a difficult task, indeed, since the one who wrote this is an accomplished writer and poet. I hope that I could make the aesthetics of the original work reflect in the translated work.
I translated four middle-length stories, a few short stories and more than 100 classical Chinese poems into English before this one. So I guess that I have come a long way in improving my English writing skills. Of course, I still need to make more effort. Yes. "fact checking" is not relevant while doing translation. The most important thing, I guess, when doing translation is to ensure the accuracy, so I can't add or ignore the facts in the original work. Anyway, I need to improve my translating skills as well . Thanks all for reading my work! Best wishes!


Some poems written by the writer: http://www.writingforums.com/threads...u-(Translation)

The Ghost is one of the stories I have translated: http://www.writingforums.com/threads...anslated-story)


These two translated poems were published by a Chinese electronic journal:http://www.writingforums.com/threads...iend-Back-Home

芬兰的电子技术受日本青睐,皇军的不少产品技术,也是从芬兰购买后去“八格呀鲁的干活”。在芬兰大约30%以上的家庭有了电脑,其更新极快,质量好,价格高,销量大。芬兰的化工,机械,冶炼,造船等等产品技术也是世界前列。陈永贵最喜欢芬兰化肥,万吨粪船乐此不疲,年年依然。芬兰造的豪华巨轮,远销美国,加拿大,日本,澳洲等国。他们没有煤炭,没有铁矿,他们的钢材优质畅销。任何产品,只要是芬兰出产,就令人放心。他们的客户是德国,法国,英国等十几个世界老牌商界行家。
Finland's electronic technology has won Japan's high favor.  Japanese buy quite a few products and skills from Finland and rework them. In Finland, more than 30% of households have a computer. The computer upgrade here is fast, high price and in high demand.  Chemistry, machinery, metallurgy, shipbuilding technology and skills are ranked in the world top position. Chen Yonggui is fond of Finnish fertilizer. Millions of tons of manure are shipped to him year after year providing high spirit for both producers and consumers. Grandest cruise ships made in Finland are exported to the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia, and other countries. There are no coal, no iron mine in Finland, but steel has good quality and can be sold well. Any products, as long as they are made in Finland,  can give  buyers a worry-free mindset.
So far, Germany, France, England and so on, more than ten countries have become loyal customers of Finland.


对文化的传播,芬兰政府也不遗余力,教育免费,介绍各国文化书籍等及目可见。三国水浒,红楼梦,金瓶梅,唐诗宋词等书,图书馆里举手之劳。这里健身房,运动场,公共设施的林园,广场比比皆是。学芬兰语很有趣,需要巧舌如簧,芬兰语精细入微,语法如魔法,天花乱坠,令人不着边际。而且必须先学语法,后用词典。芬兰人人是语言天才,大多数人会四五门外语。一位操十门外语的朋友能用汉语与我交谈自如,俱说在其所会的语言里居中下程度。
The Finnish government spares no effort to spread of their culture. The education is free in Finland. Books about other countries' cultures can be seen everywhere. Such as the Three Kingdoms,  The Dream of the Red Chamber, The Golden Lotus, and Tang and Song Poetry, all are available at your fingertips.  Gym, sporting fields, public facilities, parks and squares  can be found here and there.  The Finnish language is so interesting and sophisticated with detailed and complicated syntax and grammar, that as if a magic that makes you feel like it is everything but irrelevant.  And you must learn grammar first, and then dictionaries.  Every Finn seems to be a language genius. Most of them can speak four and five languages. Finland is a linguistic genius of everyone, most people have four or five foreign languages.  A friend who masters ten foreign languages well can speak with me in Chinese proficiently.  It is said that his Chinese  is under average among languages he speaks.


这又是个高智商的民族,仅有500万人的小国啊,翻开英美今年版的二十世纪百科全书,第二,第三位就是芬兰人。以S字母开头的是世界享誉世界的第一流建筑学家萨理恁父子(Saarinen Eliel,Saarinen Eero)在赫尔辛基,巴黎和美国留下出类拔赘的建筑手笔。而今流行的<> 姥咪妈妈的童话故事,就是芬兰女作家妥菲.艳淞(TOVI.YANSSON)的名著。享誉全球的数学巨人Lars.V.Ahlsors出生在芬兰。驰名世界数学“解析函数值分布”理论的创立者,也是芬兰数学家若尔夫,涅瓦林那(ROLF.NEVANLINNA)的杰作。

And the Finnish nation  is a nation with high intelligence. This is just a small country with only five million people, but when you open the encyclopedia of the 20th century, you will find that  those who sitting on the second and third positions are Finns.  Beginning with the letter S, they are the names of the renowned architectures with the first-class honours, Saarinen Eliel and Saarinen Eero, the father and the son who had left their excellent masterpieces in Helsinki,  Paris and America. The popular Muumimamma, fairy tales was written by Tovi.Hansson, a famous Finnish writer. The world-famous mathematics giant Lars.V.Ahlsors was born in Finland  as well. Rolf. Nevanlinna,  a mathematician, who is also a Finn, established the master piece, the world famous mathematic theory, "analytic value distribution".
