Do You Fear the Wind


这首诗注重格律,讲究韵脚,是加点历来被传唱的经典诗作之一。

 


Do you fear the force of the wind, 
The slash of the rain? 
Go face them and fight them, 
Be savage again. 
Go hungry and cold like the wolf, 
Go wade like the crane:  
The palms of your hands will thicken, 
The skin of your cheek will tan, 
You’ll grow ragged and weary and swarthy, 
But you’ll walk like a man! 
——  Hamlin Garland
