蒙特雷爱情故事

http://www.montereycountyweekly. ... 1-001a4bcf6878.html

有兵陷囹圄,二战火犹燃。
加州军营锁,乏味实难堪。
长官施恩典,周末可亲探。
七姑八大姨,攀亲未谋面。
只为佳肴美,岂敢图姻缘。
未料有佳人,好奇来窥看。
一见堕情网,二见不忍还。
三见暗相约,四见盟海山。
他乡认故乡,停战成熬煎。
被遣罗马地,鱼雁数百篇。
意国结连理,双双把家还。
夫妻劳渔业,育子行成三。
鱼竭船网挂,建筑做领班。
勤劳社区事,庆宴常司餐。
不觉岁月老,妻先离人寰。
鳏夫心破碎,存世仅两年。
同穴松柏地,遥闻车马喧。
和谐白头曲,半岛佳话传。

The Love Song of Monterey

In the raging fire of the War.
A POW was thrown into bondage
Locked up on a base in California
His life was dull and meaningless
Kindly the authority granted
Host family weekends for POWs
Through the maze of Italian kins
He found a stranger's family
All he cared was a good meal
And none like a romantic deal
Yet there was a curious pretty girl
Who came to see this enemy POW
At first sight they fell in love
At the second none wanted to part
At the third they promised secret dates
At the fourth they vowed a life of union
Taking the stranger's land as hometown
The POW now feared the end of war
Sent back to the land of Ancient Rome
He wrote hundreds of love letters
Finally they tied the knot in Italy
And returned as a married couple
Into fishing they worked hard
And brought up three children
Ocean depleted, he turned to construction
The boat laid aside, the net went dry
They laboriously served the community
With their wonderful cooking
Time passed without one knew it
The wife left before the man
Heart broken was the left behind
He followed within two years
Now in the same bed they rest
Distantly the city traffic they hear
The love song of their harmony
Is still sang around Monterey
