孤独的根号三

我害怕,
我会永远是那孤独的根号三。
三本身是一个多么美妙的数字,
我的这个三,
为何躲在那难看的根号下。
我多么希望自己是一个九,
因为九只需要一点点小小的运算,
便可摆脱这残酷的厄运。
我知道自己很难再看到我的太阳,
就像这无休无止的,
1.7321…………
我不愿我的人生如此可悲。
直到那一天,
我看到了,
另一个根号三。
如此美丽无暇,
翩翩舞动而来,
我们彼此相乘,
得到那梦寐以求的数字,
像整数一样圆满。
我们砸碎命运的枷锁,
轻轻舞动爱情的魔杖。
我们的平方根,已经解开。
我的爱,重获新生。
我无法保证能给你童话般的世界,
也无法保证自己能在一夜之间长大。
但是我保证,
你可以像公主一样永远生活在自由,幸福之中。

I fear

that I will always be a lonely number like root three

A three is all that's good and right

Why must my three keep out of sight

Beneath a vicious square-root sign?

I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick

With just some quick arithmetic
    
I know I'll never see the sun
    
As one point seven three two one
    
Such is my reality
    
A sad irrationality
    
When, hark, just what is this I see?
    
Another square root of a three
    
Has quietly come waltzing by
    
Together now we multiply
    
To form a number we prefer
    
Rejoicing as an integer
    
We break free from our mortal bonds
    
And with a wave of magic wands
    
Our square-root signs become unglued
    
And love for me has been renewed
