浪漫的季節~秋天

3

秋天無論東西方,在詩人口中都是浪漫的季節,裡面都有用到 autumn 或 fall !

秋天可以說 autumn 或是 fall 。簡單來分的話,autumn 屬於英式、 fall 屬於美式,不過現在沒有那麼明確區分英式美式了,所以不管講哪個大家都能明白你在講秋天哦!

It was a breezy autumn night that I fell in love with him.
我在一個微風輕拂的秋夜裡愛上他。

autumn 也常常被拿來當作片語使用,像是 autumn year 是「晚年」的意思。

He spent his autumn years with his beloved one.
他與他的摯愛一起度過晚年。

現在就來看看西方國家是怎麼描寫秋季的吧!

I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.
我愛秋天,一個像是上帝存粹為了美而創造的季節。
– Lee Maynard (美國作家)

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
秋天是另一個春天,秋天的每一片葉子都是一朵小花。
– Albert Camus (諾貝爾文學獎得主)

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
寒冬是刻版畫、春季是水彩、盛夏是油畫,而秋日則是集結了他們的馬賽克。
– Stanley Horowitz (美國詩人)

I see the turning of a leaf dancing in an autumn sun, and brilliant shades of crimson glowing when a day is done.
我看見飄落的葉子在陽光下起舞,在日落時轉紅。
– Hazelmarie Mattie Elliott (美國作家)

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.
秋天的口袋裡,比其他季節收藏著更多金黃色。
– Jim Bishop (美國作家)

Autumn that year painted the countryside in vivid shades of scarlet, saffron, and russet, and the days were clear and crisp under harvest skies.
秋天把鄉間漆得斑斕——緋紅、橙、黃褐,乏困的日子在雲彩多變的天空下也漸漸清晰。
