有人知道這首英文詩的作者嗎?

Old Ladies' Home

Sharded in black, like beetles,

Frail as antique earthenwear

One breath might shiver to bits,

The old women creep out here

To sun on the rocks or prop

Themselves up against the wall

Whose stones keep a little heat.

Needles knit in a bird-beaked

Counterpoint to their voices:

Sons, daughters, daughters and sons,

Distant and cold as photos,

Grandchildren nobody knows.

Age wears the best black fabric

Rust-red or green as lichens.

At owl-call the old ghosts flock

To hustle them off the lawn.

From beds boxed-in like coffins

The bonneted ladies grin.

And Death, that bald-head buzzard,

Stalls in halls where the lamp wick

Shortens with each breath drawn.

    Sylvia Plath, Poet / Writer

    Born: 27 October 1932

    Birthplace: Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts

    Died: 11 February 1963 (suicide)

    Best Known As: Poet and author of The Bell Jar

    Sylvia Plath's haunting and personal poems and her tragic life story have placed her in the pantheon of contemporary American poets. Plath grew up outside Boston, graduated from Smith College and attended Cambridge University in England on a Fulbright Scholarship. In 1956 she married English poet Ted Hughes and, after a brief period teaching at Smith, settled in Devon, England. In 1960 she published her first collection of poems as The Colossus to favorable reviews, but her marriage to Hughes dissolved and Plath moved to London with her two children. Between 1961 and 1963 she wrote dozens of poems, but continued to struggle with a mental illness that had already caused her to attempt suicide twice. In 1962 her play Three Women was performed on BBC, and her semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, was published under a pseudonym. In February of 1963 Plath gassed herself to death with her kitchen oven. Most of her published works appeared posthumously, including Ariel (1965), Winter Trees (1972) and Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams (1979, a collection of short fiction). In 1981 The Collected Poems of Sylvia Plath was published, edited by Hughes; it won a Pulitzer Prize in 1982.
