訳:Immortality Ode X

X

Then sing, ye Birds, sing, sing a joyous song!
ならば歌え,鳥たち 歌うがいい,愉快な歌を
   And let the young Lambs bound
   羊たちを乗らせたまえ
   As to the tabor's sound!
   そのさえずりで!
We in thought will join your throng,
僕らも群れに加わろう
   Ye that pipe and ye that play,
   笛を吹き戯れる
   Ye that through your hearts to-day
   心から 今まさに
   Feel the gladness of the May!
   五月の慶びを感じる君たち!
What though the radiance which was once so bright
何になろう かつて煌々と解き放たれていた光が
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
今や視界から永遠に失われたからと言って
   Though nothing can bring back the hour
   あの時間を取り戻せないからと言って
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
草原の隆盛 花の精華―
   We will grieve not, rather find
   Strength in what remains behind;
   嘆くことはよそう 逞しさを見出そう
   残って今あるものの中に,
   In the primal sympathy
   Which having been must ever be;
   持ち続けてきた
   無垢な同情に,
   In the soothing thoughts that spring
   Out of human suffering;
   苦悩から湧き出る
   慰めの心に,
   In the faith that looks through death,
   死を超えて向ける信念に,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.
悟りの心をもたらす歳月に.
