「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Green Leaves of Summer 綠油油的夏天

Green Leaves of Summer 綠油油的夏天


今天是六月的第一天,天氣變得炎熱,有人把一年的四季,簡單的劃成十二月至二月為冬季,三月到五月是春季,六月至八月為夏季,九月至十一月是秋季,言則夏季正式到來了。雖然從四五月已經開始熱,令人汗流隔背俗語有話:『未食五月糉 寒衣不敢送』,下星期就是六月八日『端午節』。


但比較嚴格的說法,冬季應由『冬至』開始,春季由『春分』開始,如此類推,今年夏季就是由六月廿一日『夏至』才開始,直至九月廿二日『秋分』,開始踏入秋季,夏季才正式完結。


孤勿論怎麼樣算,事實上香港的冬天漸短,今年四月初,已經有過接近三十度的記錄,樹木早已經開花,綠葉成蔭。舊文介紹過幾首 Brothers Four 精選碟的名曲,又怎能漏了這一首 Green Leaves of Summer,
綠油油的夏天呢?





Green Leaves of Summer ~ Brothers Four

MP3試聽

A time to be reaping
A time to be sowing
The green leaves of summer
Are calling me home

It was so good to be young then
In the season of plenty
When the catfish were jumping
As high as the sky

A time just for planting
A time just for ploughing
A time to be courting
A girl of your own

It was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife
At the moment of birth
wo ...

A time to be reaping
A time to be sowing
A time just for living
A place for to die

It was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer
Are calling me home

It was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer
Are calling me home



伸延閱覽:
Where have all the flowers gone? 花兒都往那裡去了?
Green Fields 青田
Green Sleeves 綠袖子
獅子 與 羔羊
炎炎夏日打油詩

很喜欢這首歌,但唱起來又有少少傷感,綠油油的夏天,綠悠悠的生命,Now the green leaves of summer .... Are calling me home。

地球嘅天氣愈來愈反常,
春夏秋冬都亂哂,
唔知下一代的生活會唔會有好大的變化了!
可能人類就是因為自己破壞地球而趨向滅亡!

微豆兄:
有傷感即喺有段古,
很多往事只能回味,
不是要忘記過去事,
有時要放低啲往事,
重新開步人生之路!

借幾句 林子祥 的歌詞:

幾多往時夢 幾許心惆悵
別了昔日家 萬里而去 心潮千百丈

收起往時夢 拋開心惆悵
任那海和山 助我尋遍 天涯各處鄉

闖一番新世界 挺身發奮圖強
要將我根和苗 再種新土壤
就算受挫折 也當平常
發揮抉擇力量 再起我新門牆

似那家鄉樣

新鮮兄:
人類的短視,急功近利,破壞地球生態,
狂熱好戰分子發動戰爭,加快破壞地球,
地球現今天氣反常,可算是人類自作孽,
讓梨爺爺和石姨姨明白甚麼叫『天譴』。
