He Knows He has Wings

Victor Hugo

What matter it though life uncertain be

To all? What though its goal

Be never reached? What though it fall and flee—

Have we not each a soul?

Be like the bird that on a bough to frail

To bear him gaily swings

He carols though the slender branches fail—

He knows he has wings!


他晓得自有翅膀

维克多•雨果

何必去管它,人生总是无定?

壮志未酬又何妨?

又何必计较你蹉跎并败离—

我们岂不是各自有灵魂?

要像那鸟儿在柔弱胡枝梢,

经不起它欢乐地雀跃;

虽然那细枝打断了它仍歌唱—

因为它知道自己有翅膀!
