For the Purpose of...
Writing. For the sake of the world.
早上起床,陽光從窗子照入,晒得被子暖暖的,像是在你懷抱中,或是你已經在那裏了?
窗邊的小桌上放著昨晚看到一半的小說,書上繫的紫色緞帶標示著讀到的頁數。
拉開窗簾,樹葉在陽光下顯得更綠、玫瑰更紅。
Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you. *

***

走到小溪旁,把手伸進水裡波了幾滴,感到格外清涼,
摘起岸旁的蒲公英把它種子吹散風中好像有一點太過浪漫了。
數著雛菊的花瓣數,"He loves me, he loves me not?"
何不拉拉小提琴或是彈彈鋼琴? 還是我不會? 沒關係,遠方有幽幽的音樂聲傳來,
是一首流傳已久的愛兒蘭民謠...
"...And I’ll roam over the valley, and mountains so wide
Till I find the lass of Aughrim and lie by her side..." **

***
從堆滿書的書架上抽下一本封面是朱紅色的書,幾乎是新的。
因為常翻所以上面還沒有甚麼灰塵,翻開來,開始做夢,
希望今晚的夢,可以夢見我住白大理石的城堡中 *...
不過那首歌大概已經失傳了吧。

*Edmund Spenser Faerie Queene
** The Lass of Aughrim (Lord Gregory)
* "I Dream I Dwelt in Marble Halls"
