这是一个我自问自答的问题,为的是纪念昨天死去的演员 Robin Williams.

Robin Williams 在电影 Dead Poets Society 中扮演老师 John Keating, carpe diem 是他在影片中教给他的学生们的一句话,这是一句拉丁语,意为 "seize the day", 他向学生们这样解释:

I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately
I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life
To put to rout all that was not life.
And not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived

我走入丛林
因为我希望有意地活着
我希望活得深刻
吸取生命中所有的精华
把非生命的一切都击溃
以免让我在生命终结时
发现自己从来没有活过

这是我大学时代最喜欢的电影,对我产生了非常大的影响。让我再站在桌子上,读一遍电影中 Mr. Keating 教学生们读过的诗,来纪念故去的 Robin Williams, Mr. Keating, my Captain.

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;

    Here captain! dear father!
    This arm beneath your head;
    It is some dream that on the deck,
    You've fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;

    Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
    But I, with mournful tread,
    Walk the deck my captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.
