Emily Dickinson


There's been a death in the opposite house As lately as today. I know it by the numb look Such houses have alway.  The neighbours rustle in and out, The doctor drives away. A window opens like a pod, Abrupt, mechanically;  Somebody flings a mattress out, - The children hurry by; They wonder if It died on that, - I used to when a boy.  The minister goes stiffly in As if the house were his, And he owned all the mourners now, And little boys besides;  And then the milliner, and the man Of the appalling trade, To take the measure of the house. There'll be that dark parade  Of tassels and of coaches soon; It's easy as a sign, - The intuition of the news In just a country town.

فارسی : بهزاد رعیت


مرگ در خانه ی روبرویی بوده است




مرگ در خانه ی روبرویی بوده است
همین تازگی ها همین امروز
از ظاهر کرختش می دانم
چنین خانه هایی همیشه چنین اند.ه

همسایه ها
با سر و صدا
می آیند و می روند
دکتر می رود.ه
پنجره شکفته می شود چون غلاف،ه
خشک ، بی انعطاف

کسی تشکی را به بیرون پرتاب کرد
کودکان
آن دور و بر و بی قراری می کردند
می پرسند آیا کسی روی تشک مرده است ؟ه
من هم می پرسیدم زمانی که پسرکی بودم .ه

Emily Dickinson

There's been a death in the opposite house



There's been a death in the opposite house
As lately as today.
I know it by the numb look
Such houses have alway.

The neighbours rustle in and out,
The doctor drives away.
A window opens like a pod,
Abrupt, mechanically;

Somebody flings a mattress out, -
The children hurry by;
They wonder if It died on that, -
I used to when a boy.

The minister goes stiffly in
As if the house were his,
And he owned all the mourners now,
And little boys besides;

And then the milliner, and the man
Of the appalling trade,
To take the measure of the house.
There'll be that dark parade

Of tassels and of coaches soon;
It's easy as a sign, -
The intuition of the news
In just a country town.
