英詩Spring當中的”Palm and May”翻譯為何?

英國詩人湯瑪斯•納許(Thomas Nash 1567-1601)所寫的一首膾炙人口的名詩《春》(Spring)中的一句詩文,The Palm and May make country houses gay.當中的"Palm and May"到底該如何翻譯??網路上有查過一位教授的意見..應該是"成對詞"的運用,這種說法對嗎??

Update:

感謝這位朋友的回答...

但..這是翻譯軟體無法回答的問題..希望能有對英文文學比較有研究的朋友提供建議給我^^||~~

    你所引用那句 Thomas Nash 的名詩 “ Spring ”的原文應是:

    The palm and may make country houses gay.

    palm 指的是棕櫚樹,may ( 不用大寫M)指的是 山楂花,就是我們一般說的 mayflower(五月花)。

    “ The palm and may make country houses gay.”

    翻譯如下:

    “ 棕櫚和山楂花讓村舍生意盎然。”

    郭沫若曾將這首詩翻譯為中文,可供參考:

    SPRING 春

    Spring, the sweet Spring, is the year's pleasant king;

    Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,

    Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing,

    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

    春,甘美之春,一年之中的堯舜,

    處處都有花樹,都有女兒環舞,

    微寒但覺清和,佳禽争著唱歌,

    啁啁,啾啾,哥哥,割麥、插一禾!

    The palm and may make country houses gay,

    Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,

    And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay,

    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

    榆柳呀山楂,打扮著田舍人家,

    羊羔嬉遊,牧笛兒整日吹奏,

    百鳥總在和鳴,一片悠揚聲韻,

    啁啁,啾啾,哥哥,割麥、插一禾!

    The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,

    Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,

    In every street theses tunes our ears do greet,

    Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

    Spring! the sweet Spring!

    郊原蕩漾香風,雛菊吻人腳踵,

    情侣作對成雙,老嫗坐曬陽光,

    走向任何通衢,都有歌聲悦耳,

    啁啁,啾啾,哥哥,割麥、插一禾!

    春!甘美之春!

    解答找來的翻譯翻得太中文化......

    感覺意思有偏掉 但是翻譯的人應該很理解詩的意思...
